Prepare for a Power Outage

One of the best preparation methods is to have a plan in place for a power outage. Since we are very dependent on electricity, it is very important to ensure that you have resources in advance.

Here are some ways to prepare for a power outage:

  1. Have backup power sources such as flashlights, lanterns, and batteries.
  2. Store non-perishable food and water supplies, as well as a manual can opener.
  3. Keep a portable or standby generator for emergencies.
  4. Make sure you have a working phone charger, either battery-powered or hand-crank.
  5. Store important documents and keep them easily accessible.
  6. Consider purchasing a backup heating source such as a wood stove or kerosene heater.
  7. Keep a backup supply of any essential medications.
  8. Keep a backup of critical medical equipment powered.
  9. Stay informed by having a battery-powered or hand-crank radio.
  10. Consider investing in a solar panel system to provide a source of electricity.
