WOOD COUNTY ARES BULLETIN NR 19.05 DATE: February 3, 2019
SUBJECT: DO YOU HAVE EMERGENCY LIGHTS?
Do you have emergency backup lights if your commercial power was to go off in the middle of the night? Without some kind of backup lighting you might have to stumble around in the dark looking for a flashlight.
Of course you may have flashlight on your desk stand, but when was the last time you used it, or tested it. There are some cheap backup lights that you can purchase that plugs into a standard electrical receptacles that comes on when the power fails. It would be nice to have some kind of backup lighting.
Remember, God made toes for finding furniture in the dark.
