Due to the severe weather, wildfires, and terrorism many parts of the country has suffered (or is still in fear of suffering from it), I feel it might be a good idea to be prepared for whatever may happen so that you may live independent of public utilities, food and water for a period of time.  A radio that doesn't require electricity (such as a crank radio or battery ) is essential.

It would be a good idea to stock up on food, water, and fuel.  All items should be properly and safely stored so that it won't spoil, become contaminated, or represent a safety hazard (in the case of flammables).  Water and fuel should be stored in proper, approved, containers in a secure location.  All items should be rotated, used periodically, and replaced with new to avoid the question of spoilage or contamination.  (I previously lived in an area that was in of being stranded due to flooding.)  I stocked up with at least 30 days supply of canned and dried food.  I never thought to rotate the food and was surprised when I moved and discovered canned goods over 5 years old which I promptly trashed!  That food would have been useless in an emergency!)  I did think to rotate the gasoline into my car instead of filling the tank.  Of course I used proper containers which were stored in an out building away from my home.  Should the fuel ever become unwanted, it can be donated to your fire department,  other public service agency, or charitable organization.

Remember, a hot water heater can be turned off, the water drained and used for cooking or drinking.

  Electrical Generators and equipment:

It would be a good idea to have an electric generator to power your home or business and provide heating and/or cooling.  A generator should be of adequate output for what you want to power.  You can power your computers, lights, and phone system, but depending on the generator you may or not also be able to run your air conditioner, electric range, or electric oven.  Any generator connection should be installed or inspected by a qualified electrician.  Also, I recommend that a generator not be installed inside your office or home due to carbon monoxide in the exhaust.  I recommend that the generator be located in an out building or outside to be properly ventelated.

An UPS (uninterrupted power source) will back up your PC allowing enough time to safely shut it down as well as usually protection from power surges.  I also uses an UPS on my phone system and my VCRs.  The UPS backup keeps my phone system protected and operational.  They also prevent the VCRs from losing memory and will record during a limited time in the event of power failure.

                                                  Heat

Kerosene heaters are one option of heating.  Since the kerosene heater is producing live, hot flame care should be exercised that the heater is kept far enough from furniture or anything that could be combustable to prevent fire.  Also since combustion will produced carbon momoxide, the area must be properly ventilated.  Fuel should be stored in an approved storage container away from anything that could be a source that could ignite it.
