How prepared is your community for emergencies?

There’s a discussion beginning among Portland, Oregon, cohousing communities 
about being prepared for emergencies with backup emergency power sources for 
refrigeration of medications and food, communication needs, cell phones, 
heating, the case of any emergencies, from mudslides  to major 
earthquakes. Certainly there has been no shortage of emergencies around the 
country in the past year.

If your community has researched and invested in emergency power source 
options, please share what you’ve done here and what costs were involved. Will 
your community be prepared for a few days, a week or more? Is there ongoing 
expense involved?
