Last week I realized how very important it is to have an emergency box prepared with all the necessities that you would need in the event of power loss. You should keep all these items in a box together in an easy to find location.
- matches (sometimes lighters fail)
- flash lights with at least 2 sets of batteries
- radio with battery (I didn’t have one of these!)
- corded home phone (in case cell phones are out; we only have cordless phones which don’t work when the power is out)
If you have anything else in your power outage emergency box, please share it!
