October 2014 – Power

The Goal: Be able to safely meet your basic needs during an electrical outage.

Have flashlights ready in an easily accessible place and check batteries in flashlights and radios. Create a power outage plan - decide what you can do before, during and after a power outage to minimize the effect on your household. Acquire and learn how to safely use a portable generator.
