Power outages can occur anywhere, anytime, and to anyone


  • Develop a household emergency plan that suites your family’s individual needs and limitations.
  • Assign specific safety tasks to family members.
  • Practice your household emergency plan until everyone is sure of their role and keep it current by practicing every six months.
  • Prepare an emergency kit to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours, but preferably one week.
  • As well as having an emergency kit at home, you should have one in your vehicle and at school or work.
