Power Outage Preparedness!

Preparation Tips for a Power Outage

Do you know how to handle a power outage, before, during and after?

Unless you live in a hut in the depths of the woods, most of us rely on electricity every day! From technology use, to the toaster, to hair-dryer, power is an important part of our daily functions. Most of us tend to realize this when the power goes out. When we’re stumbling around in the dark trying to find that flashlight is the time in which we wish we’d been prepared!

Luckily, we’ve complied a list of how to stock your home with essentials and know the basics of how to prepare for a power outage!


  • Build an emergency preparedness kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
  • Purchase ice bags to keep food cold during a temporary power outage.
  • Keep a flashlight and extra batteries in an easy-to-reach location.


  • Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible.
  • Turn off and disconnect appliances and other equipment in case of a momentary power “surge” that can damage devices.
  • Use your gas-stove to cook food or boil water.


  • Throw away any good that has been exposed to low temperatures or has an unusual odor, color, or texture.
  • Restock your emergency kit with fresh batteries, canned foods, and other supplies.

  • Risk Management assisted me in determining the best insurance coverage to match my business’ risks. Not only did their professional staff spend ample time meeting with me to understand my business, but they continue to follow up with a phone call on a regular basis. I’d consider each of the members on the Risk Management team a true asset in my corner, as they assist to resolve complex insurance issues including GL, Med-pay, business interruption, unemployment insurance, and most importantly, claims management. Their ongoing research in the insurance industry allows my rates and coverage’s to be best in in class, which helps me to remain competitive in my industry.

  • “When we want develop partnerships with vendors, the deciding factor is always based on a single question…Do they pick up their phone? At Risk Management, they pick up their phone. In the indoor trampoline park industry, we have dealt with several insurance agencies that were always more concerned about their commission, not building a business relationship or serving our needs. On more than one occasion, Risk Management has stepped in and helped us with carrier/policies issues that the incumbent agencies had dropped the ball on. There was no financial reward for Risk Management in these situations, they see a problem and help fix it. They just do business the right way. Steve Young and his team at Risk Management represent us, not the carrier. We highly recommend Risk Management.”
