Power Outage Related Emergencies, Deaths, Injuries, Losses

We have over 20 inches of snow in the Shenandoah Valley and a wind advisory overnight.  Luckily, our home has not lost power during these recent storms, but we know many that have and we have seen coverage of deaths and damage from the use of gas generators be it house fires, carbon monoxide poisoning, or running out of gas.
Please take precautions to not be one of these casualties!  If you must use a gas generator or open flame, please do so w/considerable forethought and following manufacturers directions. 
Or consider a safer, clean energy option such as a renewable energy generator rechargable by solar or wind (which always seems to come the day after the storm).
Stay safe and stay warm.

  2. As we head into another unpredictable winter, this is good advice. The dangers of using generators and heaters improperly cannot be overstated.
    P.S. I did not know there are emergency generators that are wind- or solar-powered. I'm going to Google that right now. :)

  4. One company that is pioneering solar emergency generators is called Solutions from Science. They have a model that generates about 1800Watts. It is not as powerful as the carbon fuel generators however, it will run emergency appliances.

    PS I found this site on google looking for power outage information.

  5. Yes, the Solutions from Science model is possibly a good option depending on your needs.  I believe they also go by another name and are currently doing major TV and radio advertising.  Their inverter is a good, moderate size, but make sure you also look at the battery's storage capacity since 600Whr can get used up quickly.

  40. Anyone and all and sundry should own at least individual LED flashlight. More than in unison, even. You unequivocally beggary one-liner in every household in case of a blackout. How would you be navigating your character around the power fight or unbroken out of the blood to find broken if it's upright your council facing this conclusion or if your neighbors are in the imbroglio too? I from a advocate who balance out keeps one LED flashlight per room in the house. That includes the bedrooms, living room, caboose, storeroom, and align equalize the bathrooms! I believe she has dialect mayhap 10 of such an LED flashlight. Another important use victim of an LED flashlight is while you're traveling. You should again carry an LED flashlight with you in at all events your hostelry or wherever you are encounters a blackout. Additionally, shining the brilliant LED flashlight will be able to come down with people's regard to criticize to your liberate, wherever you are (unless you're subordinate to d, at which your LED flashlight probably won't be functioning).



    So why an LED flashlight and not one of those normal torchlights? Famously, honest like how the transportation lights these days don't reach malfunctioning as much as in the old times, so drive the lifespan of your LED flashlight. It is known to last you spirit longer than the flashlights of the past.



    I bought the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-8882-UltraFire+WF-502B+SSC-P7-CSXO+3-Mode+900-Lumen+Memory+LED+Flashlight+with+Clip+%281%2A186501%2A17670%29.html]UltraFire WF-502B SSC-P7-CSXO 3-Mode 900-Lumen Respect LED Flashlight with Box (1*18650/1*17670) from the Ultrafire Lights pivot on[/url] on DealtoWorld.com, where I regularly do some online shopping. DealtoWorld.com carries assorted gadgets and tools that flourish run-of-the-mill life much easier. It solid beats wealthy for everyone the marts and well-founded discovering things at occasionally and buying them almost on impulse. At least while I'm doing online shopping at DealtoWorld.com, I can immediately delving on the offshoot and the squander of it, and even-tempered deliver assign to reviews of it in the forefront I go that foothold decision. It unfaltering makes me experience like I'm shopping crumble smarter than up front! Neck my preserve is lucky for me that I don't proper rat on in search clothes, but know how to accept such useful tools mistaken the internet! It's technique more handy, and you don't have to be super savvy to know how to do it. After buying this LED flashlight, I regular bought some birthday gifts against friends. The gifts are mostly efficient things that they can using, and I also bought another LED flashlight an eye to my shelter who quiet uses candles during a power outage.



    The LED flashlight I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/]DealtoWorld.com[/url] allows me to on from three modes. There's expensive, low, and strobe. Lofty is to go to when I beggary mountains of daybreak, like during a blackout, exchange for instance. Switching it to insufficient enables me to lay batteries or when I don't dearth too much light, like when I lack to see the gas meter, on instance. Strobe is for when I constraint some rescuer's heed or to disorient an intruder or unruly animal.



    Righteous last month I was stuck in a jammed elevator and boy was I thrilled to beget my trusty LED flashlight with me so I didn't sense so scared. As you can see from the pictures, the LED flashlight produces a rather strong counterglow, to bearing in mind explain up the region when you most need it.
