Suggested Areas To Store Emergency Kit(s):
Store grab-and-go food and water container where easy to access in case you are advised to evacuate.
Children and adults keep their emergency kit(s) in their bedrooms. Let the children have responsibility for their own backpack and have the older children buddy-up and take care of younger brothers or sisters.
Mom, dad take care of baby. If a senior citizen resides with the family, also buddy-up and help them for they move slower and a backpack may be too heavy for them to carry.
Donʼt forget house pets should also have emergency kits to be ready to grab-and-go. Pack the foods pet(s) normally eat, leashes, crates and litterbox. Re-think where all of your camping hear is located throughout the household.
Keep in one area if possible for easy access so youʼre not looking in the dark with a flashlight for things. Always keep a pair of hard sole shoes underneath your bed.
Recommended Emergency Container Tips:
Create emergency kit(s) and store in any type of containers with wheels. Such as for the larger kits; garbage cans, foot-lockers, ice chest, various size suitcases or various size plastic boxes. A water-tight container is most ideal for keeping a 72-Hour Kit
