Power Outages (FEMA)

We rely on electricity and other utilities for survival, so when we lose power it's a major problem. A power outage compounds the impacts of a natural disaster and increases anxiety. Having a way to communicate with family, friends, and coworkers is imperative.

These are just a few tips. Read our power outage multimedia news release for additional details and visit Ready.gov for more information about power outages.
