POWER-OUTAGES CAUSED BY SEVERE WEATHER AND OTHER EMERGENCIES CAN PUT FAMILIES AT RISK, FOR POTENTIALLY HARMFUL AND SERIOUS OUTCOMES.  THAT'S WHY ENERGIZER, THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FIRE CHIEFS, AND THE AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY ARE WORKING TOGETHER, TO HELP ENCOURAGE FAMILIES TO TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO GET PREPARED, AHEAD OF THE STORM.  A SIMPLE WAY TO PREPARE FOR POWER-OUTAGES IS TO HAVE AN EMERGENCY-POWER KIT READY, BEFORE A BLACKOUT OCCURS.  ENERGIZER RECOMMENDS THAT YOU HAVE THE FOLLOWING IN YOUR KIT: A BATTERY-POWERED OR CRANK-POWERED RADIO; A FLASHLIGHT FOR EVERY MEMBER OF YOUR FAMILY; A BATTERY-POWERED CELL-PHONE CHARGER; AND PLENTY OF EXTRA BATTERIES--INCLUDING SPECIALTY-BATTERIES, FOR HEALTH-DEVICES.  IN ADDITION TO BACK-UP POWER, IT'S IMPORTANT TO GATHER ADDITIONAL EMERGENCY-SUPPLIES--SUCH AS WATER AND NON-PERISHABLE FOOD--AND TO BE SURE TO HAVE COPIES OF IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS.  FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF TIPS FOR PREPARING FOR STORMS AND OTHER EMERGENCIES, VISIT "ENERGIZER"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"PREPAREDNESS".
