DURING SEPTEMBER'S "NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH", THE "FEDERAL EMERGENCY-MANAGEMENT AGENCY'S" "READY CAMPAIGN" URGES FAMILIES TO PREPARE FOR POWER-OUTAGES, STORMS, AND OTHER EMERGENCIES.  RECENT STUDIES BY "BRIGGS AND STRATTON" SHOW THAT OUTAGES ARE MORE COMMON--AND CAN BE MORE COSTLY--THAN YOU MAY THINK:  ON AVERAGE, A FAMILY WILL LOSE POWER FIVE TIMES A YEAR.  AND, OUTAGES LASTING LONGER THAN 12 HOURS CAN COST FAMILIES THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.  THESE COSTS CAN INCLUDE: SPOILED FOOD, BASEMENT-FLOODING DAMAGE AND REPAIRS, APPLIANCE-REPAIRS, AND EVEN EXTENDED HOTEL-STAYS.  HOW CAN FAMILIES BE WELL-PREPARED?  FIRST, THEY SHOULD MAKE AN EMERGENCY-PREPAREDNESS KIT--AND A FAMILY-COMMUNICATIONS PLAN.  THEN, THEY SHOULD THINK BACKUP-POWER:  GASOLINE-POWERED PORTABLE-GENERATORS ARE CAPABLE OF POWERING ESSENTIAL HOME-APPLIANCES.  AND, BETTER YET, A PERMANENT STANDBY-GENERATOR CAN BE PROFESSIONALLY INSTALLED--SO IT AUTOMATICALLY TURNS ON, WHEN AN OUTAGE OCCURS.  WHAT'S MORE, SMARTER TECHNOLOGY IS MAKING STANDBY-GENERATORS MORE AFFORDABLE THAN EVER.  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT PROTECTING YOUR HOME, GO TO "POWER-NOW"-DOT-COM.
