|1 - 2 hours||Turn on a single light to be alerted when power is restored and check the status of your outage.|
|2 - 4 hours||Use food safety by keeping the doors of your refrigerator and freezer shut as much as possible as this will help maintain the cold temperature.|
|4 - 8 hours||Think about how you'll keep your mobile device charged. A laptop or car charger can help. Coffee shops and community centers are also good places to charge devices.|
|8 - 12 hours||Food in your refrigerator after eight hours begins to spoil and may no longer be safe, so you should pack food into a cooler surrounded by ice.|
|12 + hours||Check on elderly and vulnerable neighbors if your outage is lasting longer than 12 hours.|
