No matter where you live and what climate you experience, everyone is susceptible to a power outage every now and then. The best way to be prepared for a power outage is by having a whole-house generator. Be sure to unplug all of your appliances so that there is no damage in the event of a power surge. Opt for flashlights instead of candles to reduce the risk of fire. Keep plenty of batteries on-hand and have your cell phone charged at all times.
- The best case scenario during a power outage is to have a permanent backup generator.
- Opt for flashlights and lithium battery-powered lamps over candles for safety.
- In the event of a power outage, keep your cell phone charged and ready to go.
