Do you know what to do with the perishable food in your freezer or refrigerator if the power goes out for an extended period of time?

Some foods do just fine without refrigeration while others can spoil quickly. Make sure you review these food safety guidelines and add them to your family emergency plan so you always have the information handy.

Once you have a food plan, hold a post-emergency power outage “drill” and prepare a meal using only the tools and foods available in your family emergency kit. Let our power-free recipes or these from Kohler Chef Rick Boyer serve as an inspiration as you try your hand at some tasty dishes created from non-perishable ingredients.
