I know you don’t believe there will be a major power outage in America, but get prepared for it with your supplies and party like it’s 1999.
If your home is covered with a massive snow drift that push against your front door and the power goes out for weeks, what are you prepared to do for lighting, warmth and cooking?
Having a power outage party is on a light note, but on a serious note, you won’t feel like partying with a freezer full of meat spoiling.
If you are already prepared for a national EMP (electrical magnetic pulse) emergency, then throw a power outage party and invite all of your friends who are not ready for a catastrophic power outage to show them how to get prepared.
I have put together a list of supplies you need to have below:
You need flameless candles, flashlights, lanterns and wax candles.
Just be sure to keep them at least 12 inches away from anything that could potentially catch fire, such as curtains, furniture, bedding, books and flammable liquids.
If you can, get a wood burning stove and/or use a wood or gas fireplace to heat the house as the sun set for the night.
Remember to never leave heating sources unattended.
If you don’t have a gas heater, make sure any embers in the fireplace are extinguished before going to bed or leaving the house.
You are also advised to buy warm blankets and to dress in layers in case the power doesn’t come back on.
An external battery charger is essential for keeping our smartphone battery fully charged.
Don’t waste your battery listening to music, podcasts, etc.
To keep from completely burning through your data plan, us a hand crank weather radio and tune into a local AM station to hear the status of road conditions and weather updates.
When the massive power outage hit the fan, there won’t be any partying going on!
Americans have been in quarantine for at least three months; and now that the weather is warm, they just want to “get out” and party!
I understand, but when a massive power outage hits, you need to be ready.
For some strange reason, the weather is STILL unseasonably chilly.
If I am wrong, then I will apologize later.
If I am right, you will wish you had Winter equipment, supplies and emergency kit for harsh cold weather that lasts a few months.
Also, make sure you have emergency kits for your home and vehicle.
If you’re not listening to RuralMoney.com with helpful safety tips to prepare for power outage, you won’t listen to government notifications for weather alerts.
Unfortunately, the weather will never be reliable again and power outage catastrophes are here to stay.
