"GUARD THE GRID" Campaign & The SHIELD Act
Part of EMPact America's mission includes spreading awareness and support of the Shield Act
(H.R. 2417: Secure High-voltage Infrastructure for Electricity from Lethal Damage Act - S.H.I.E.L.D. Act)
"Powerful" and captivating graphic design was needed in order to help spread awareness and "spark" interest and support for this cause. A sub-brand was created, including a brand identity and applications for Facebook, website, PopVox Campaign and other social media platforms to help get the word out, track progress in Congress, and to make this important issue more palatable for a wider audience.
Why do we need the SHIELD Act?
In 2008, the bipartisan Electromagnetic Pulse Commission testified before Congress that: Contemporary U.S. society is not structured, nor does it have the means, to provide for the needs of nearly 300 million Americans without electricity... The current strategy for recovery from a failure of the electric grid leaves us ill-prepared to respond effectively to a manmade- or naturally occurring- EMP event that would potentially result in damage to vast numbers of components nearly simultaneously over an unprecedented geographic scale.
The SHIELD Act is a Solution:
The SHIELD Act encourages cooperation between industry and government in the development, promulgation, and implementation of standards and processes that are necessary to address the current shortcomings and vulnerabilities of the electric grid from a major EMP event. H.R. 2417's purpose is to amend the Federal Power Act to protect the bulk-power system and electric infrastructure critical to the defense and well-being of the United States against natural and manmade electromagnetic pulse ("EMP") threats and vulnerabilities.
