If you lose electricity:

If you have medical needs at home, be ready for the storms:

  • If you rely on electricity for wheelchairs or other medical devices, charge up or store extra batteries if possible.
  • If you depend on home oxygen, work with your regular provider (such as a home care company or medical gas company) on a personal preparedness plan. This could include things like stocking up on extra cylinders ahead of a storm, or obtaining a backup power source for oxygen concentrators.
  • If you lose access to home oxygen and this creates a medical emergency, call 911 or visit an emergency department.
