Storms will come, and storms will go. The worst ones leave a trail of destruction and power outages.
Be ready for severe weather with Blue Rhino! Here are some tips to help you weather the storm.
Pick up a fresh propane tank
You can fuel a grill to boil water or cook food before it spoils if the power goes out. Pick up a spare of it appears the power will be off for an extended amount of time.
Stock up on food and water
Canned/preserved goods such as stews, soups, canned meats, and vegetables can be heated on the grill. Boiling water on the grill makes it safe for drinking and for food preparation.
Gather your tools
Store all the tools needed for cooking on a grill and serving food. In a large plastic bin, place pots, skillets, napkins, paper plates, plastic utensils, butane lighters, and recipes. Include an LED light source.
Secure the grill and propane tank against high winds. NEVER use the grill indoors or in a garage. NEVER store or use a propane tank indoors. Any appliance fueled by gas, oil, kerosene, propane, wood or charcoal can create deadly carbon monoxide gas if used in enclosed areas.
