Most of us take so many modern conveniences for granted. For example, we walk into a dark room or building, and we immediately look for the light switch. Click. We have light…
What if that was not the case? There are many disasters in which the power could go out. And if the power goes out, obviously, so will the lights…
During any serious crisis in which the main power grid is interrupted – or possibly even go down on a long term basis – using emergency methods for producing light will become an immediate concern. Among the primary means for emergency lighting are:
- Kerosene lamps
- LED lighting (battery powered)
- Chem lights
It is not enough to simply have a couple of flashlights and think that you have everything you need for emergency lighting. It is highly recommended that you procure more than one form of lighting – using more than one form of fuel or power source for that lighting (such as battery powered lighting and lamps which use kerosene). Then also make sure that you have adequate amounts of those fuels or power sources to be able to use those forms of lighting for at least three months – if not longer.
