Food may not be safe to eat during or after an emergency. Food may become contaminated with chemicals or bacteria during hurricanes, floods or other severe events and foods that require refrigeration may not be safe to eat if there is no power for an extended period.
While the power is out, keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. Add block ice or dry ice to your refrigerator if the electricity is expected to be off for more than 4 hours. Wear heavy gloves when handling dry ice.
Breastfed infants should continue breastfeeding. Mothers who are breast-feeding should keep warm, eat well, drink plenty of fluids and snuggle babies close to them. For formula-fed infants, use ready-to-feed formula if possible.
