Emergency and Storm Preparedness

With the bad winter weather we've been having, we're getting intermittent power outages. My neighbor and I have been putting our heads together today to figure out how we'd handle an extended power outage with our 2 families that include 5 children ages 12, 8, 7, 3, and nearly 2.

In preparation for a possible power outage I got the camp stove out and found the propane tanks. I also found the propane lantern and all our candles. All of these are within easy reach. We also have a nearly full propane tank on our gas grill.

My neighbor has a fireplace and plenty of wood.

The van is full of gas although if it gets icy I won't be using it!

There are enough sleeping bags to go around and we have plenty of food too.

Are there any other things we should be doing to get ready?
