Our gubmint and corporate leaders have their heads in the sand when it come to power outages. The doomsday scenario of an EMP or CME are quite popular in modern fiction, but other things can cause power failures. A lightning strike in Brazil created a nightmare scenario. Keep your EDC up to date and ready, and never go anywhere without it. Be prepared at home and teach the family how to cope with emergency situations, and what to expect if the grid goes down. Always remember: A good scout is prepared. At all times. For anything.
