Is a backup electric power part of your preparedness plan?

Electric backup power can keep the lights on, help appliances stay running, save perishable food, and power essential equipment and electronics during a power outage. Generators can also be expensive, noisy, and can pose safety hazards. It's important to understand how to safely operate your backup power before an emergency occurs.
