Below is a list of thing that you can do to achieve your goal this month.
Choose at least one, and complete it.
Have flashlights ready in an easily accessible place and check batteries in flashlights and radios.
Acquire and learn how to safely use a portable generator.
Create a power outage plan – decide what you can do before, during and after a power outage to minimize the effect on your household.
We count on electricity for heat, food, and medical needs. Many gas appliances even need electricity to run. A power outage is an emergency that often follows another emergency—like a hurricane, tornado, or winter storm. That makes it even more important to be prepared in advance
