Most of us keep excess frozen food stored in our freezers, things that we picked up on sale at the grocery store that we haven’t managed to use yet.
You’ll remember, in the case of Hurricane Matthew, Berkeley Electric decided to protect their equipment by cutting the power to Seabrook Island before the storm hit, and it took several days for the power to come back online. As a result, most of us had to dispose of a freezers’ worth of food. Don’t let that happen again. Now is the time to eat down the foods in your freezer and keep only a minimal amount of frozen food in it until hurricane season is over.
Also, check your homeowner’s policy to see if it covers your freezer contents in the event of a power outage.
Remember, be prepared; stay safe.
