We rely so heavily on computers and electrical power for nearly every daily need. This is a free lecture and discussion about the North American electrical grid system used in the United States, and various origins of power outages. Learn about the fragile state of the electrical grid—addressing the massive effects that long term power loss would have on the public. Free to the public from Blaine-based NW Emergency Preparedness. A film will also be shown for ages 14 and up.
