Place flashlights and/or glow sticks by every bed for use in a nighttime emergency. We have plenty of candles, flashlights and glow sticks in our home, but after fumbling in the dark to find them during a power outage I decided then we would keep glow sticks in every room in our home and I hung one on every door knob. Sure enough, next outage I knew exactly where to find light. Several people told me during Hurricane Irene this past week that they were ready with glow sticks on all the door knobs. Make sure your children know these are for emergencies only. They will run for them when the power goes out!
