Common measures to take include, charging your phone to full charge before the power is switched off and also have alternative charging methods for example a power bank.
When it comes to the food department, keep the freezer/fridge door closed for as long as possible to preserve freshness for longer. You may want to plan for food that may go bad; you can, for example, warm it prior and eat it before it goes bad.
Prepare for power surges by unplugging and switching off everything in your home during a blackout.
Also, have ready light sources, for example, flashlights, candles, and paraffin lamps on stand by in case the blackout lasts into the night.
