Power outages can be especially dangerous for seniors. if you have any kind of medical equipment that requires electricity, make sure you have an alternate power source. We had a power outage that lasted a few hours today and if I would not have had a generator, I don’t know what I would have done.
That is indeed a great reminder. Besides medical equipment, make sure that you either have a landline phone that is corded or a cell phone. Most people don’t think about the fact that cordless phones don’t run without power.
