Being Proactive in the Event of a Power Outage

7/27/2022 (Permalink)

Power outages are not as common as rain, or even snow, but they still have a chance of happening. In the occurrence of a potential power outage, you need to be proactive and prepared. Here are some things to consider during the event of a power outage. 

Keep freezers and refrigerators closed

It’s important to make sure you are not opening your refrigerator or freezer in the event of a power outage. Your refrigerator will typically keep food cool for four hours. Your freezer will keep food cold for around 48 hours. You may want to use coolers with ice for other items that you may need to keep cold.  

When you’re consuming food, make sure you’re consuming food that does not require refrigeration or freezing.  

Do not use a gas stove to heat your home 

By not using a gas stove to heat your home, you are preventing the chance of carbon monoxide poisoning. 

Check on your neighbors and other loved ones

It’s best to find out how others you care about, and others in your community are holding up. This is important for the elderly as well as those who are young. These individuals are more vulnerable to temperatures. 

Disconnect any appliances and electronics

Doing this will help you to prevent any electrical surges and any other damage that could possibly be preventable.
