STORM KIT - POWER OUTAGES
Rrecent weather has had many people throughout New Zealand living without power for sometimes extended periods. You need to figure out how to stay warm during a power outage for up to 10 days. I’ve had several people inquire about a preparedness list and ask what’s needed in a power outage kit. There are the main essentials you’ll want to consider when preparing for a power outage: light, warmth, radio, charging a cell phone, hygiene, food, and water. The list of basic essentials doesn’t all need to be in your kit as long as you have a plan for it. Below is a simple list of items that should be in emergency kit.

WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POWER OUTAGE KIT!
HEATING SOURCE

HEATING SOURCE
If you have a fire place make sure you keep a supply of firewood in case of an emergency.
Gas heaters are cheap to buy second hand through Trade Me and from second hand shops. They need to be used in a ventilated area but are an excellent choice if used properly. They will work with the same gas bottle you use with your barbecue. Buy an extra bottle or two.
Another alternative could be a kerosene heater. You dont see them used a lot now but could be handy in an emergency.

LIGHTING
Its no fun when the lights go out so you need one or more sourses of light to make life more comfortable. Having a few torches and spare batteries is a must for starters. A lantern of some sort whther gas, kerosene or battery powered will get byou through the night. Candle are of couse a great stand by and a few packets take no space in your pantry. Dont forget to stock a few packets of mathes.

RADIO AND TORCH
Torches are a must. They are relatively cheap and a few should be kept around the home and in the car for emergencies. A portable radio is also essential to find out whats going on. Dont forget to keep your batteries fresh. You can buy combined radios with torch and wind up versions of both are available.

BATTERY BANK /PHONE CHARGER
Smart phones and handheld devices take a big battery to charge. Battery banks are a quick and efficient way to charge these devices. You’ll need about 10,000mAh to fully charge two smart phones. Solar versions are also available.

COOKING STOVE

COOKING STOVE
You’re going to need a way to cook without electricity and some easy meals that can be cooked using only one cooking pot. The first day without power is fun. You get to eat the ice cream before it melts in your freezer and have cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (before the milk goes bad). The next couple days you eat through the soup, crackers, bread, and snacks in the house. About day 4 of no electricity, that’s where people start to panic because they haven’t prepared.
