A winter storm has caused a power outage in your home. Now what do you do? Since the length of the outage can vary from a few hours to several days, you need to plan to get by without utilities for at least three days.
Use FEMA’s “Going Off Grid: Utility Outages,” free, online activity module to reference simple steps to get prepared for an outage. This module also provides a food safety reference chart so you can know when to save food or when to discard it.
