While measures can be taken to reduce the number of large-scale power losses due to failures of the generation and high-voltage transmission grid, such failures cannot be eliminated. The survival of essential missions is a more tractable problem than the prevention of all large cascading failures, and its solutions are verifiable. Thus, serious attention should be directed towards assuring the continuation of essential missions even after the grid has failed.
