Put together an outage kit with items that will be useful in other emergency situations as well. Store these items in a water-tight container:
Preparing for Outages
1. Bottled water – one gallon per person per day. (Most emergency preparedness experts recommend having at least a three-day supply on hand.)
2. Ready-to-eat foods and manual can opener
3. Battery-operated radio, clock, flashlight and extra batteries
5. First aid kit
If someone in your home is on life support, be sure to have a back-up system and a plan of action for during an outage.
