Power's Out -- What Now?
Plan ahead and put flashlights where you can find them in the dark.
Use flashlights and other battery-generated light sources when walking around the house.
Don't carry a lighted candle, or use a candle to look for things in a closet or confined area.
Place candles out of the reach of children.
Don't put candles in a spot where a pet might knock them over.
To avoid an extremely dangerous situation, do not use a candle for light when adding fuel to a lantern, because the candle flame may ignite the vapors.
