Emergency lighting

In order not to find yourself in the dark, the very minimum you need is:
• A supply of candles. Ordinary candles are fine, but long-burning candles are recommended. Don,t forget to also store water-proof matches and/or a few cigarette lighters.
• A few flashlights (battery operated, windup or solar powered).
• Emergency lighting. Ideally, your emergency lighting should be left plugged into strategically selected outlets in your home so that it will turn on automatically when power fails. Don,t forget to also store spare batteries and bulbs.
