The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provides guidance for those who have medical devices that require electricity. Please ensure you have appropriate plans and supplies on hand as it relates to a power loss.
Those who receive supplies delivered to their home should have plans in place to ensure services are not disrupted after a disaster.
