Being prepared for a possible power grid collapse is a must. The power grid can shut down for an extended period for a variety of reasons, such as wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes, mismanagement, sagging lines and high winds.
Having a prepper’s mindset is an advantage. Here are 12 things you need to prepare to survive a power grid collapse. (Related: Prepping tips: How to survive a long-term power outage.)
When the power grid fails, you must have a flashlight at your home. Place flashlights in your bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, garage, vehicle and one close to your electrical panel.
Having spare flashlights is a good plan. It is much better if you have rechargeable batteries on hand for those flashlights.
Oil lamps and candles are other probable lighting sources, but they can cause fire. Candles and lamps can be an advantage when you need heat, especially in cold climates.
Having a crank-powered flashlight is good, especially if it can serve as a flashlight and a backup charger for emergencies.
Flashlights are good, but you have to make sure that their batteries don’t go out easily.
Having batteries with long storage life is also essential. Also make sure to have rechargeable batteries and a good charger.
Rechargeable batteries can be costly but can save you a lot of money over a long period of time.
Having cases of water bottles around during power outages is essential. It is better that you rotate your water storage since water will go stale after extended storage. Keeping a 55-gallon drinking potable water drum with a pump can be useful in emergencies, especially if you don’t have a substitute water source.
Nature calls whether the power is out or not. You need to stock up on extra toilet paper.
With long-term grid down situations, toilets aren’t likely to work. Know where your poop goes.

It might be necessary to poop on a newspaper, or in a DIY Emergency Toilet and store waste in a black plastic bags. Have some wet wipes available for clean up.
Having lots of heavy-duty garbage bags is a must. You should also plan ahead for your garbage management.
If you use paper plates and plastic silverware so you have less or no dish washing, that means more garbage.
Garbage bags can also be makeshift tarps if a window is blown out, or you need to make something partly waterproof temporarily.
Having a generator is important, especially if you have the funds. Of course, you need to learn how to use it.
You must have a heavy-duty extension cord to power your appliances and you can hire an electrician to hardwire your home’s electrical system.
If you are using natural gas, you might consider using a natural gas generator.
You can also use solar panels, but they are an expensive option compared to a generator. If you are already using solar panels, you should focus on home battery solutions.
Off-grid cooking tools and supplies
Learn how to cook your meal without electricity. Practice no-electricity cooking regularly so that you will know how to do it and make sure you have the much-needed equipment.
Use outdoor grills and have extra bags of charcoal. You should also consider having extra propane tanks.
Use indoor gas ranges/stoves that will work when there is a power outage. You can also purchase a portable gas stove.
Food that you eat daily
Begin to stock more of the food that you regularly eat. Focus on food that you can store without electricity.
Stockpile food that is on sale since it costs less. Remember to eat your oldest food first. Since you eat daily, it will keep your stock of food fresh.
Ensure that you have food supplies enough to last for a week if not more. Make sure you can process and prepare your food without electric power.
Have a three-day food supply for everyone in your family. You can also complement it with freeze-dried or canned foods that you like.
Heating and cooling equipment and supplies
For people living in cold climates, it is best to consider an indoor safe heater to keep you warm. You also need to get extra propane tanks.
If you have a fireplace or woodstove, it is better to store firewood.
Your cell phone battery will eventually be drained of power so you should have a solar charger, car charger, extra power battery pack and crank USB charger.
Have a written or printed-out list of key phone numbers along with local paper maps so you can get to where you are going and when your GPS isn’t working.
Have a crank-powered radio so you can listen to emergency broadcasts and TV broadcasts.
First aid supplies
Make sure that you have your own first aid kit. Have one first aid kit for your home, in your vehicle and at your work. You should have enough first aid supplies that will enable you to survive for a week.
Learn CPR and basic first aid training and make sure that members of your family are properly trained as well.
Money and other items
Businesses that are open may only be able to take cash, or only take credit. It’s good to have both on hand, especially small bills.
A deck of cards and board games, meanwhile, can be useful when you feel bored and want to pass the time.

Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of six sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
