You never know when a storm is going to hit and you could find yourself without power. It pays to be prepared for a power outage at all times. Here is a list of things you should keep accessible for use until you can get your power back up and running:

  • Flashlights and fresh batteries
  • Candles or other illumination, battery operated candles are a great option
  • Battery-powered radio and/or television (for news updates)
  • Battery-powered or wind-up clock
  • A land-line telephone that is corded
  • Emergency phone numbers
  • Firewood for heat if you have a fireplace
  • Ice blocks to fill your freezer, a full freezer stays colder longer
