If you’re new to preparedness, you may be reading some of the excellent and informative websites out there and feeling quite quite overwhelmed. A great starting point for someone who is just getting started on a preparedness journey is prepping specifically for a two-week power outage.
Even if you aren’t convinced that hardcore preparedness is for you, it would still be difficult to argue against the possibility of a disaster lasting for a couple of weeks. To prepare for a two week emergency, think about what you would need if the power went out and you couldn’t leave your home for 14 days. If you opt for a secondary cooking method, be sure that you have enough fuel for two weeks. If your power outage takes place in the winter and you live in a colder climate, heat is another necessity. A common cause of illness, and even death, during a down-grid situation is lack of sanitation. If you are on a septic system, with no risk of the toilet backing up into the house, simply store some water for flushing in the bathroom. If this is not an option, another solution is to stock up on extremely heavy duty garbage bags (like the kind that contractors use at construction sites) and kitty litter.
If you’d like to expand on the basic supplies, a more detailed list of tools and hardware can be found HERE. It’s important to have a basic first aid kit on hand at all times, but particularly in the event of an emergency.
Begin by personalizing the suggestions above to fit your family’s needs and make a list of your requirements. Next, do a quick inventory – as I mentioned above, you may be surprised to see that you already have quite a few of the supplies that are recommended. The peace of mind that comes from being prepared for a disaster before it happens cannot be measured. If you’ve dealt with a long term power outage, what were some of the items that you found the most important?

Centrelink suffered a power outage to a datacentre in Canberra last Friday morning that crippled phone, web and face to face services nationwide, with staff at at least one Canberra branch being sent home without receiving the full picture about what had happened.
Centrelink offices were kept open on Friday to handle basic enquiries and those customers who did not have an urgent matter to be addressed were urged to wait until this week before contacting Centrelink.
An ActewAGL spokeswoman was contacted by Delimiter today who issued the above statement and said further information to the cause of the fault was yet to be received at the time of writing the article.

This seems to be the same excuse that Ravi from Primus uses each time one of their DCs goes dark. Millions of people were left without electricity in the southern Philippines on Thursday after a massive power breakdown, officials said, as repair crews worked to determine the cause of the outage. The power cuts began before dawn and affected heavily populated areas in Mindanao, home to a quarter of the country's nearly 100 million population. Mindanao, the nation's main southern island which relies mostly on hydroelectricity, has been grappling with chronic power shortages for years. The NGCP said at least 12 of Mindanao's key cities and provinces -- including major trading hubs -- were affected, although limited power was restored in some parts a few hours later. Philippine Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla said repair crews were working to trace the cause of the interruption, stressing that he was confident power would return to all areas within the day. An electricity shortage last year forced the NGCP to ration off supply in Mindanao, resulting in up to 12 hour daily blackouts which damaged the local economy as factories slowed production. Jak podala Ontario Energy Board, wzrost spowoduje wzrost przecietnego miesiecznego rachunku za energie o 3,99 do 5,80 dol. Maksymalne ceny energii w godzinach szczytu, od 11 rano do 17 w dni powszednie, wzrosna o 0,9 centow do 11,7 centow za kWh.
Ceny w porach sredniego szczytu, w dni powszednie od 7 ranodo11ranoiod17do19, wzrosna o 0,8 centow do 10 centow za kWh. Poza szczytem, od 19 do 7 rano w dni powszednie oraz przez caly dzien w weekendy i swieta, ceny zwieksza sie o 0,3 centow do 6,5 centow za kWh.
Dla konsumentow jeszcze nieprzestawionych na ten system wzrost bedzie wynosil od 0,4 i 0,5 centow za kWh. Podwyzki oplat sa wynikiem dokonywanych dwa razy w roku przegladow cen energii prowadzonych przez Ontario Energy Board. Minister energetyki Ontario powiedzial, ze wzrost kosztow wynika z wysilkow majacych na celu spowodowanie, aby system energetyczny byl bardziej przyjazny wobec srodowiska naturalnego. Prowincja jest w trakcie wycofywania zanieczyszczajacych powietrze technologii wytwarzania energii z wegla i zastepowania go drozszymi zrodlami energii w tym gazem ziemnym, energia jadrowa, energia sloneczna i wiatrowa. W styczniu, Ontario Energy Board odrzucila poprzedni wniosek o wzrost oplat zlozony przez Toronto Hydro, ktory podwyzszylby miesieczne rachunki o okolo 5 dol. Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has given reason for the power outage being experienced in some areas within the company’s operational territory since Sunday, March 13, 2016, Daily Independent reports. Areas listed to have been affected by the outage include Lagos Island, Ikoyi, Victoria Island Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju and their environs. The statement further stated that concerted efforts were being made by generation and transmission technical personnel to repair the fault and restore supply in record time.
Once you begin creating your plan, you may be surprised and discover that you already have most of what you need to batten down the hatches for a couple of weeks.

In the event of a disaster, the water may not run from the taps, and if it does, it might not be safe to drink, depending on the situation.

Normal Centrelink services were expected to be back to normal for Western Australia yesterday and the rest the nation were expected to resume services today. We are an energetic and engaged community of Australians who work with or who are interested in technology -- all sorts of IT professionals, IT managers, CIOs, tech policy-makers and tech enthusiasts. Just under two weeks ago, crews had to fill a much larger sinkhole less than a block away near the intersection of West 11th Place and South Newport Street.
Godwin Idemudia, the company’s Head of Corporate Communications, in Lagos, attributed the outage to a line trip from Egbin Power Station. He said the line trip had made it impossible for customers being serviced from Ajah, Lekki and Alagbon transmission injection sub-stations to receive power supply. Fortunately, it’s one of the easiest things to plan for, as well as one of the least expensive. The author may or may not have a financial interest in any company or advertiser referenced. I can’t imagine what Centrelink is doing down in Canberra but this certainly exposes how much they need to upgrade their infrastructure.
