Have You Prepared for Lights Out times??This month we are going to focus on how to prepare for a power outage in your area. It's interesting - you don't realize how used to power and lighting at our fingertips we are until it's gone! You need to have multiple sources for lighting when you need it.
Candles - the safest ones are those that are in a glass container. They don't have the risk of falling over and starting a fire.
Flashlights - multiple kinds. Battery powered, hand crank powered and solar powered.
Solar lanterns and generators - there are many small varieties of solar lights that are small and easy to store. Many can even charge your small electronics for you.
One thing I also recommend is a Power Failure Light. It plugs into an outlet and lights up automatically when the power goes out so you can find it easily in a power outage. You can use it as a flashlight or stationary light source. I have one plugged into outlets in my hallways and bedrooms for everyone to use if needed. Here's a source on Amazon
