A Handy Power Outage Checklist: Before, After, and During

0003964-Power-grid-USAOne of the reasons I’m so big on self-reliance and being ready for anything is that when an emergency or disaster or something unexpected happens, there’s a lot to keep track of.

Do you have the supplies on hand to stay safe and comfortable?

Do you know what your immediate risks are and how to mitigate them?

Do you know what to do when the danger has passed, but there’s still clean-up to consider?

Trying to keep track of all these things when you’re also trying to manage the emotion, fear, and pressure that comes with any emergency… it’s tough for anyone.

The more preparation you do ahead of time, the better off you’ll be. Even the most prepared individuals can benefit from a checklist to keep them on track during an emergency.

Which is why I want to share this Power Outage Checklist from Weather.com with you.

A power outage is one of the most common disruptions… it’s one everyone has to deal with sooner or later. If that outage lasts more than a few hours, it can turn into an emergency if you aren’t ready to handle it.

This checklist will help you make sure you’re prepared, but it also gives you important safety questions to ask during the outage as well as after the lights come back on.

It’s definitely worth looking at.
