Remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen food
locker.
OR
B)Place 2 Ibs of dry ice in the freezer
for every cubic foot
of freezer
space. This will keep the food
frozen for two to
four days. While
handling
dry ice, wear gloves to protect
your hands from frostbite.
OR
C)tf neither a food locker nor dry ice is available,
consume
or can perishable
food at once.
REMEMBER: In a power failure,
a full freezer
stays cold longer
than a partially
filled one. A freezer fuji of meat stays cold
longer than a freezer fuji of baked goods. If you see that food
contains
ice crystals,
it may be safely refrozen,
although
the
quality
and flavor
may be affected.
If the condition
of the
food
is pot, or if you feel it is unsafe, dispose of it.
SUFFOCATION

unconsciousness
and death by suffocation.
Open a window
and do not breathe
the vapors.
