Power Outage Safety (Part 1): Before the Storm

6/7/2019 (Permalink)

The best way to weather the storm and a resulting power outage is to be prepared.

Storms, such as lightning and thunderstorms, often cause power outages that can last for many hours or even days. You can minimize inconvenience and maximize safety at home by being prepared for an outage.

  • Inventory the items you need that rely on electricity.
  • Talk to your medical provider about a power outage plan for electrical medical devices and refrigerated medicines. Find out how long medication can be stored at higher temperatures.
  • Have plenty of extra batteries on hand.
  • Sign up for local alerts and warning systems. Monitor weather reports.
  • Install carbon monoxide detectors with battery backup in central locations on every level of your home.
  • Determine whether your home phone will work in a power outage and how long battery backup will last.
  • Have a supply of nonperishable food and water. Have flashlights with extra batteries for every household member.
  • Place a thermometer in the refrigerator and freezer so you can check the temperature when the power is restored.
  • Keep mobile phones and other electric equipment charged and gas tanks full.
