Putting together a Black Out Kit often can be done with items that are already found in most households.
Having a couple of propane canisters in your Black Out Kit to fuel a camp stove will be very comforting should you find yourself trying to figure out how to cook soup with no electricity. Depending upon your geographic location, housing type, environment, and overall health – power outages can range from a minor inconvenience to a serious threat.
Growing up in the northern states ofNew EnglandI had my fair share of winter power outages as a child. Flashlights – Flashlights are the basic building block to a black out kit and are invaluable when it comes to existing in a grid down situation.

BatteryChargers – With so many devices capable of being charged via USB plugs – have a couple of USB adapters that can plug into the cigarette lighter or 12V power outlet in your vehicle. It is not a question of When the power will go out – but for how long and how bad the situation will be. In 1989 I saw the effect that Hurricane Hugo had as it knocked out power in theCharlotte,NCarea. Taking a few logical steps like putting together a “Black Out Kit” can make dealing with most any power failure a bit easier and safer too deal with. Burning candles obviously exposes the environment to open flame and it only takes a moment to ignite the wrong thing and the power outage now becomes much more serious.

The power would flicker, go out and my parents would get a flashlight, a few candles and build a roaring fire in the fire place.
These inexpensive camp stoves can be used outside to cook very similar to a conventional stove top. LED lanterns are more expensive however they provide much more light and sip power out of batteries.
