Are you prepared for a major power outage?


Are you prepared for a major power outage? Last week in a little innocent squirrel caused a major power outage in the East Bay that lasted nearly two and a half hours.  Some of you may have been affected by it – Krista on our team was definitely affected by it and while she was a “little” prepared we thought it would be a good idea to remind you what to do in a power outage.  Whether you are in a Short-Term Power Failure, Long-Term Power Failure, Summer Power Outage, Winter Power Outage (luckily we don’t have a real “winter”) or an Extended Power Outage/Home Shutdown there are few essential items you should keep in your house for moments like these.

  1. Self-powered flashlights
  2. Candles
  3. Glowsticks
  4. Matches
  5. Lighter
  6. First Aid Kit
  7. Extra cell phone car chargers
  8. Water
  9. Coolers
  10. Ice

Check out the full list here.  The most important thing is to have a plan in place for any type of situation like this and to stay calm.  Let us know if you were affected by the major outage last week and how you managed through it!
