Hibbing Home Suffers Power Outage During Spring Storm?

5/28/2024 (Permalink)

A person tests a circuit breaker during a power outage. We restore water damage 24 hours a day in St. Louis County.

Our local Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing teams restore storm damage every year in Hibbing. During a power outage, protecting food supplies is essential to prevent spoilage and ensure safety. Here are some steps to take to protect food until power is restored:

Keep the refrigerator and freezer closed: Limiting the number of times you open these appliances helps maintain colder temperatures for longer periods, preserving perishable items.

Use coolers with ice: Transfer perishable items from the refrigerator to coolers filled with ice to maintain their temperature. This is especially important if the power outage is expected to last for an extended period.

Consume perishables first: Prioritize consuming perishable items like dairy, meat, and leftovers before they spoil.

Invest in a backup power source: A generator or battery backup system can keep refrigerators and freezers running during power outages, minimizing food spoilage.

Monitor food temperatures: Use a food thermometer to check the temperature of perishable items in the refrigerator and freezer. Discard any food above 40°F for over two hours, as eating may have become unsafe.

Stock non-perishable items: Keep a supply of non-perishable foods such as canned goods, dry goods, and shelf-stable snacks that do not require refrigeration or cooking.

By implementing these strategies, individuals can protect their food supplies during power outages, minimize waste, and ensure food safety.
