What to do when your power goes out

The Red Cross has some helpful tips to follow in the event of a power outage:

  • Use flashlights NOT  candles
  • Be aware of carbon monoxide dangers if you use a generator

FOOD SAFETY

Keep your refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible; you want to keep as much cold air inside as you can. A refrigerator can keep food cold for about 4 hours. A full freezer will keep the temperature for about 48 hours if the door remains closed.

Eat perishable foods from your fridge first, then move on to non-perishable floods.

Electrical Safety

  • Turn off and unplug all unnecessary electrical equipment
  • Turn off or disconnect appliances
  • Turn off your air conditioning system
  • Leave one light turned on so you know when power comes back on
