I don't think you need to worry about your filtration unless your power outage is gonna be
2-4 days so I would only worry about getting oxygen into the tank

Most important thing is to not let your filter dry out. I went 7 days with out back in July. If your worried about the air, use a cup and spend a few minutes dumping tank water back into itself.

I like to keep a battery powered bubble maker that I got from pet smart for times like these. Just put some batteries in and hook up the airline to the provided air stone.
