Hurricane Tip: How to Protect Your Food During a Power Outage
While FPUA crews track Hurricane Ian and prepare to restore utility services quickly and safely, there are a few early steps you can take to keep your refrigerated foods safe in the event of a power outage. Before the storm, set your refrigerator to 40 degrees F or below and your freezer to 0 degrees F or below. Freeze containers of water and gel packs to help keep your food cool, and have a cooler handy just in case.
During the storm, keep your refrigerator and freezer doors closed. If you experience sustained power outages, you will want to take extra precautions. After 4 hours without power, put refrigerated perishable foods in a cooler and add ice or another cold source to keep them at 40 degrees F or below.
