JohnMu Unplanned outages are stressful enough - here’s how to win a bit of time. If your site is completely down, serve 503 for all requests asap (you can show a user-friendly page too). If your host is down, point your DNS to a temporary host that just serves 503.

@nekrtemplar H5 apps typically predate service workers. If they were offline-capable at all, which as far as I can tell wasn’t very common, they used AppCache. This aspect, though, is a requirement of PWA, just like being installable.
