Create an Emergency Kit

An emergency kit should include everything you need for approximately three days time. A few of the items are:

  • Nonperishable food supply, enough for three days.
  • Flashlight. 
  • Extra batteries.
  • At least three gallons of water.
  • Candles.
  • First aid kit.
  • List of emergency phone numbers for utilities.

Family members may have specific needs that will require certain items to be included. Keeping these things on hand will allow you to remain comfortable until the power comes back on. 

Alternate Power Source 

One of the biggest problems people face in this technologically advanced world is how to live without their electronics, especially if the power goes out and there is no way to charge a phone or tablet. Purchase a solar-powered charger that allows you to charge your phone or other electronics even when the power is out. If you have medical devices that need to be operated by electricity, it might be a good idea to invest in a small battery-operated generator. This will allow you to power your devices as well as keep your medical equipment functioning until the power is back on.
