Preparedness is a big deal here at the Mr Beams headquarters. And should we experience a power outage, we’re stocked with wireless lights and batteries and are definitely ready for it. But there are other situations to be prepared for that don’t involve lighting. Sometimes it’s a little thing, like never running out of your every-day essentials, and other times it’s a large-scale emergency. Either way, we want to be prepared, so we rounded up preparedness tips from some of the Mr Beams team.
