Excerpt from pages 2-3.

The best way to prevent a power outage from becoming a catastrophe is to plan ahead. Assess the potential disaster, natural or man-made, that you might face, and plan to eliminate or minimize its impact on your household. Start by considering your needs. Physical survival comes first. Can you provide your family with adequate food, water, and heat until power is restored? Can you guarantee the family's safety? Are there infants or elderly people in your home whose health would be threatened by loss of heat or cooling? What about animals and family pets?

After physical safety is ensured, think about your home and furnishings. Will your pipes freeze in a prolonged outage? Do you have an alternate source of power? Do you need one? Do you know what to do to prevent ruined appliances due to power surges and spoiled foods from lack of refrigeration?

Educating yourself and your family is the first step toward surviving a power failure. Start with the infrastructure of your house.
