Just remember that any wire connected to your generator will act as an antenna, not only blowing up the equipment connected to the generator, but the generator as well. Just make sure everything is disconnected when you anticipate and EMP event.
I am not sure how you will protect yourself in the event of an EMP event, though.... guess a suit made from tinfoil will work, but that would only shield you from the HIRF, and still won't shield you from the gamma or x-rays that can be generated by a nuclear EMP event in high latitudes.

Im not sure how well this would work but I definitely like the idea behind it. Personally I think an EMP SHTF scenario is extremely likely especially now with all this buzz with the koreans. This article is a pretty good summary of the "Red Dawn" scenario, and no kids I'm not talking about the 2012 release but the one from 1984.
For me its really scary because I can totally see there being a false flag emp strike on us by our own government by detonating a bomb high altitude and blaming the koreans. Personally I think the koreans are too dam poor and hungry right now to pull it off themselves regardless of the hype in the media lately.
I mean if it does happen theres no way that I would want to be int he US thats for sure. As for protection i found a review about emp survival here thats worth checking out. Personally though i think the best way to deal with it is to anticipate and leave the country. Like it or not the US is probably very high on the list to attack.
Of course they would, if all else fails, EMP the citizens and knock out our communications and power, then in roll the tanks and police state. I've been thinking a lot lately about this and starting to prepare by having solar powered items, such as a battery charger and protecting some things.

One of my concerns regarding an EMP is my mom. She has a pace maker for her heart. I have not said a word to her about it as it would scare her, but I'm worried an EMP would do something to her device.

Any long slot will admit RF as if you had a hole that size. It's a big issue with sealing systems for RF susceptibility.
So that big opening around the door, or at the hinges, or where your metal foil meets, is a big hole that lets in RF.
It's actually pretty tough to get a good seal, too. You can do it, but it takes experience and the right materials.
