In the last two years, there have been two major storms that have hit the most populated areas of the United States. Millions of people have been caught unprepared. Their homes have been damaged because their sump pump had no power. Families were left without food, communication and lighting. There are lessons to be learned about emergency preparedness. De Jong offers some sound advice about emergency preparedness “If you think you might need it, you better make sure you have it before the outage. A couple of hours spent preparing will make families safer and more comfortable in a weather related outage.”
In an emergency, you never know what you will need. Of course the main thing that most people go without is power. During an extended weather related power outage, vehicles can be used for power. People can use a power inverter connected to your vehicle to run appliances during an extended outage.
People can use an inverter charger to power a sump pump. An inverter charger is a great way for a homeowner to be prepared for any power outage. These units work automatically and are easy to install and maintain.
