Emergency Preparedness
I was thinking it would be a good idea to have some items in the common house 
powered by propane from bulk storage.  I thought this might work well for some 
of the lighting, perhaps one stove, a fire place with gas logs.  Even if there 
were no emergency some of these are just plain nice.  At least people could get 
a meal, have some lighting and not freeze.

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?
