When the mercury dips into frigid territory, there are a few things to keep in mind — especially when the power goes out.
1. Include power outages in your family disaster plan, identifying alternate means of transportation and routes to home, school or work.
2. Keep extra cash on hand since an extended power outage may prevent you from withdrawing money from automatic teller machines or banks.
3. Keep your car fuel tank at least half-full, gas stations rely on electricity to power their pumps.
4. During a power outage, resist the temptation to call 9-1-1 for information–that’s what your battery-powered radio is for.
5. Turn off all lights but one, to alert you when power resumes.
