Our local Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing teams respond to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Grand Rapids. During a power outage, it's crucial to have safe alternative lighting sources on hand. Here are some options:

Oil Lamps: Oil lamps can provide long-lasting light using oil or kerosene. Ensure proper ventilation when using oil lamps indoors and handle fuel carefully to prevent spills.

LED Flashlights: LED flashlights are efficient, long-lasting, and provide bright illumination. Keep several flashlights in easily accessible locations throughout your home, along with spare batteries.

Battery-Powered Lanterns: Battery-powered lanterns provide ambient light and are safer than candles. Look for lanterns with adjustable brightness settings for versatility.

Solar-Powered Lights: Solar-powered lights charge during the day and can be a reliable light source at night. These lights are eco-friendly and require minimal maintenance.

Hand-Crank Flashlights: Hand-crank flashlights are powered by manually rotating a crank, eliminating the need for batteries. They're ideal for emergencies and can also charge small devices like smartphones.

Glow Sticks: Glow sticks are safe and easy to use, providing temporary light in various colors. They're lightweight, portable, and can be hung or attached to surfaces for hands-free illumination.
