PREPARING FOR POWER OUTAGES

Short-term power outages can be inconvenient, Long term outages deadly!

LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE! 

Our Mossyrock, WA Signal Group is sharing how we can be prepared for outages. Most of us can handle power outages for a few hours but how do we prepare for shut-downs for days, and Lord forbid, for weeks or longer? Our electrical grid is more fragile and vulnerable to failures than most realize. Outages can be caused by:

By weather – wind, snow, ice, and wildfires

By earthquakes

Solar flares

Brownouts where the system is overtaxed

By aged systems failing

By physical sabotage, terrorism, or war – including cyber-attacks and EMP’s (Electro-magnetic pulses)

         If the toilet stops

If city water sewer systems are closed down use chamber pots and outhouses.  

Septic-based toilets can be flushed with buckets. Fill toilet tanks.

 

         When the refrigerator and freezer dosen’t work

Refrigerators keep food cold for about four hours. A full freezer  for about 48.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS: MOVING FROM PREPARATION TO MINISTRY 

A long-term grid-down situation could cause catastrophic social consequences. In a long-term situation refugees will be looking for water, food and heat. This is a good reason for being a praying Christian, to be prepared, and ready to help others. Remember God loves to display His miraculous, saving grace and will to use you as His grace instrument!
