- You are concerned about reports of civil unrest and its potential impact on your family.
- You accept that electric utilities have limited resources and may not be able to respond in a timely manner during major storms or other emergencies, and you therefore need to take steps to have an alternative source of electric power.
- You accept that all government entities (national, state and local) have limitations in their ability to respond in times of emergency, and you therefore need to take personal responsibility and make preparations before an emergency occurs.
