Building a Power Outage Kit

Tips for building a power outage kit.

The American Red Cross encourages that each household and car have a preparedness kit, but sadly, only 51.5% of US homes reportedly have an emergency kit ready.

Power outage kits should include things like water, canned food, a can opener, flashlights, and batteries, including enough food and water for each person in your household for five days. To build a power outage kit, you can use an old backpack or duffel bag and add the following:

  • Plenty of bottled water
  • Battery-operated radio and clock
  • Flashlight for each member of your household including extra batteries
  • Non-electric can opener
  • List of emergency phone numbers including family and friend
  • First aid kit
