What should I do to keep my food safe during a power outage?
Keep the doors to the refrigerator and freezer closed. Every time a door is opened the cold air escapes.
How long will my food stay safe?
What should I do after the power comes back on?
It's winter and my power is out. Can I store my perishable foods outside in the cold?
Storing food outside is potentially dangerous and is not recommended.
