LDS Preparedness 101: Safe and Effective Emergency Lighting

Click now to get PREPARED!

Safe and Effective Emergency Lighting
Making sure your emergency lighting is safe and effective.
Light, it brings instinctive calm to the mind, it helps you to avoid hazards in the dark and for centuries it has brought light in the darkness for man. For these reasons alone, emergency lighting needs to be safe and effective, especially during times of crisis.

What to Use
I’m Ryan Edgerton and I’m going to review some of the best emergency lighting to use during a crisis.
Glowsticks
You see them at fairs and during holidays such as Halloween but what you may not realize is that they can be safe and effective emergency lighting. All you will have to do with these is bend them slightly and shake. Now you have instantaneous light for up to 12 hours. It is also helpful to know that you can store them indefinitely, meaning they’ll be ready when you are.
Flashlights
Flashlights are an item that nearly all of us have and they can provide emergency lighting in a pinch. You will however need to keep a good supply of batteries on hand to power them. My favorite types of flashlights are the ones that are self powered. For instance I think the best kind is the one that you shake to generate electricity. So not only do not need batteries, but you can have a renewable light source whenever you need it.
What Not to Use
In addition to knowing what to use, it’s important to understand what emergency lighting not to use. We’ll review some of those here.
Fire
Fire has been around for a long time and has served man well, however using fire as a means of effective emergency lighting is not wise. Matches, candles and lighters though common just are not safe forms of emergency lighting. For example, if there was a ruptured gas line you didn’t know about it the consequences could be deadly. Additionally, fire uses up oxygen supplies and has the potential to ignite flammables. So, try to avoid this source of light as a method of emergency lighting.
Combustibles
Combustibles should most definitely be avoided during an emergency. There potential for disaster is too great to be taken lightly. So, try to avoid items that may be powered by gasoline, kerosene, propane, and other related chemicals when you are considering your light source options. You’ll be much safer if you avoid this emergency lighting.
