Power Outage Safety Plan for People on OxygenWinter is here and has reared it's ugly head upon most of the United States. During these times, we often forget that people who are on oxygen may need to make sure they are kept in supplies. Most people have concentrators which run off electricity. If you have a power failure, you are not going to be using the concentrator. Take a few minutes and call up your provider and order some large bottles that last around 8 hours and some smaller ones in case you need to travel.


There are loved ones who don't think about their oxygen and may have some memory problems. If you are a family member or friend, help them out by reminding them to call for a fresh shipment.

You have loved ones who don't want to see you in bad shape because of something that could have been prevented, so take a couple of minutes and take care of this right now. It will save a lot of heartache and discomfort if you do.

Do you have a safety plan for events such as snow storms with power outages? What is your plan of action? Having a plan is important if you are elderly, or know of any elderly or disabled persons, people that depend on electrical devices, such as oxygen.
