Energizer: Power Through It All

Weather can be very unpredictable. Floods, fires, and blizzards; hurricanes, quakes, and tornadoes. At any given moment different parts of our country could be experiencing any number of these severe weather phenomena.

To help you keep your family and home safe, Energizer created this safety resource and filled it with checklists, quizzes, helpful products, and plans of action. Then, they tailored it to be specific to the area of the country you live in.

It's more than just a house, it's your home. It's where you raise your family, and where you lower your guard. It's where you unwind after a hard days work, and get ready to do it all again every morning.

But perhaps most of all, your home is your refuge from the rest of the word.
But how safe is your safe-haven? Energizer is proud to supply you with this online resource, filled with tips, checklists, and activities for parents to do with their children.

We are right in the middle of summer storms and hurricane season, so the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and Energizer want to help families be prepared for anything Mother Nature throws their way. Through the new initiative, Power Through It All™, Energizer and the IAFC provide tips for building a power kit and ways for families to stay powered and connected.

Important Tips for Building a Power Through It All™ kit:
  • Put the Power Through It All™ kit in a location that is easily accessible to every family member
  • Include at least one flashlight for every member of the household, such as a Compact LED Flashlight
  • Include a battery-powered lantern for illuminating larger spaces and rooms
  • Include a battery-operated weather radio to track the storm
  • Include extra batteries in a variety of cell sizes, such as Energizer® MAX batteries (AA, C, D) for extended power outages, along with extra batteries for critical care devices like hearing aids and glucose monitors
  • Include battery-operated cell phone chargers like an Energizer® Energi To Go® to keep your family connected during severe weather
  • Include Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries to power high drain devices like cell phone chargers. Lithium batteries have a longer storage life and perform well in extreme temperatures
  • Each year, when you change your clock in the spring, check the batteries in your flashlights and emergency power kit
