Protect yourself and your loved ones during a power outage. We do our best to prevent them, but sometimes unexpected outages happen. That’s why we want all our customers to be prepared in the event of an emergency. This guide will help you make a plan, gather supplies and stay safe before, during and after an outage.
Huzoor Anwar (may Allah be his Helper!) has repeatedly advised every Ahmadi to ensure basic preparations for emergency situations. Recently in his Friday Sermon of January 3, 2020, Huzoor once again highlighted the dangerous situation in the world today.
So let ‘s get prepared!
Emergency Preparedness Package
In our society, we have become dependent on many services that we enjoy every day, provided to us by the local authorities or ones we arrange for ourselves. Enjoying uninterrupted supply of such services makes us dependent and then become necessities of our lives. We become unprepared to deal with situations when there is an interruption in the utilities like electricity, gas and/or water. When authorities have to deal with some extraordinary situations (like storms or floods); supply of these services can be interrupted for multiple hours or even days. There could be situations when your house is not safe to stay in or when extreme precautions are required to keep your home safe.
It is very important for families to create an Emergency Plan according to their own needs and have a household Emergency Kit to deal with such situations. An Emergency Plan and Emergency Kit both enable families to keep safe in such difficult times and emergency situations.
In this unpredictable world, without warning, we may have to make quick decisions that impact the health and safety of our loved ones. We may assume that we will be able to gather what we need when something happens; but it is even easier to miss one or a few most important items in panic. An Emergency Kit provides you most of your necessities that you may need in such situations.
Emergency Kit that is well stocked, portable and easy to find for everyone in household, can help ensure that you have basic supplies to keep you and your family safe for at least 72 hours within your home or even if you have to evacuate.
