Emergency Cooking and Heating When the Power Goes Out
While some electronic options are listed below, consider the possibility that an EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) could render them useless. Non-electronics may be better all-around preparation choices.
Important things to consider before cooking:
- Practice with your method(s) of choice until you can reliably produce a meal. Don’t use it for the first time in an emergency.
- Use cooking options indoors or outdoors as appropriate. Don’t get asphyxiated from cooking fuel fumes or burn your house down while trying to make a hot meal.
- Have cooking equipment suitable for your heating option of choice.
