My Power Outage Kit

Power Outage Kit Preppers Survive

A friend of mine lives in Northern Idaho and recent cold weather and a windstorm had her living without power for six days, news reports say that some people had no power for 10 days!  With the cold weather and storms moving in, I’ve had several people inquire about ideas for a power outage kit and wonder what’s in my power outage kit.  There are the main essentials you’ll want to consider when putting together your own kit:  light, warmth, radio, charging a cell phone, hygiene, food, and water.  I personally don’t keep food and water in this kit because I keep it in a different location, but it’s accounted for.  I also don’t keep hygiene items in here.  I have a separate hygiene kit that is kept near the power outage kit.  The list of basic essentials doesn’t all need to be in your kit as long as you have a plan for it.  Below is a list and pictures of my power outage kit.

Welcome to my site! My name is Nettie and I started this blog to provide simple tools to help Preppers.  I am not a Doomsday Prepper! I am more of a Girl Scout Prepper. “Be prepared! A Girl Scout is ready to help out wherever she is needed. Willingness to serve is not enough; you must know how to do the job well, even in an emergency" (the motto, in the 1947 Girl Scout Handbook). Being a Prepper has been a blessing to me, my family, and friends on more then one occasion. You'll find these stories throughout this blog.  You will also find prepper supplies checklists, prepper events, cheap food storage ideas, emergency heat sources, survival books recommendations, reviews on power outage lights, printable prepper pdfs, and articles on emergency disaster preparedness.  Click here to read more
