No matter where you are while you read this I can assure you the power will go out in your area again. It will come to pass that you lose your lights and you are sitting in the dark. You may lose communications, too. Are you prepared to do that? Having a ready made blackout kit is crucial to the success of disaster survival. This kit should address the lack of communication, lack of light and lack of power to important devices in the home.
This article details just how to put together a powerful blackout kit. I really like the mix of items in this kit. Remember, you should always have answers that are unique to your own problems as well. Another tip is to grab a Rubbermaid container and store your blackout kit altogether in one spot. This makes it easy for you not to be scrambling.
