Power Outages, Pandemics – What Do You Need To Know?
Is your family prepared for a power outage lasting for weeks, months or longer? It is not a matter of “if” – it is a matter of “when.”
Did you know that the United States could experience a long-term national-scale power outage, such as from a cyberattack, solar storm or terrorist strike? The U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security says that millions of Americans would die if there was a long-term power outage. Millions.
Is your family prepared for a power outage lasting for weeks, months or longer? Is your community prepared?
This session will review the threats to the electric grid, lessons learned from past disasters and what your family and your community can do now to prepare.This event was sponsored by the Souhegan and Derry Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).
