• Winter Power OutageNovember 30, 2017

    During the winter, ice and storms can lead to power outage. A summary of recommendations from the American Red Cross on preparing for power outages is below. View the entire list on their website.

    • Keep coolers around to move perishable food when a power outage lasts over two hours. You could also put ice inside your refrigerator/freezer to help prolong the life of the food.
    • Consider an emergency preparedness kit. Items like water, food, batteries, first aid kits, personal hygiene items and cash are good additions. Don’t forget to keep a can of gasoline around in case you need it for your vehicle. Keep tanks full in the winter to keep the fuel line from freezing.
