One option is a tri-fuel generator. Propane will store indefinitely, unlike gas, and requires no electricity. Natural gas supply to your home is likely to still be available without electricity.

I get power outages many times in my area. what works for me is each aquarium has a sponge filter somewhere in the tank and when the outage occurs, I hook up a battery powered air pump to the sponge filter and I've never lost a fish because of this.

Update: my tanks were able to survive 9 days without power at the end of July due to wildfire. A local Animal rescue let me in on the 5th day to refill the gas tank which had about 40 gallons left.

I have since switched to a tri-fuel generator and buried two 250 gallon gas tanks 5' underground.
