Best Storage Areas for Survival Kit Accessibility
Many survivalists spend money and time on preparing the best emergency survival kits for their families. But, if the kits are not accessible during a disaster, the efforts will be wasted. Where you store your survival kit can be crucial to its accessibility. Just as you plan for several different types of disaster scenarios when putting together your emergency survival kit and readying your survival gear, you must also plan for these scenarios in deciding where to store your kit.Collapsed portions of buildings are common in disaster situations. Storing your kit near a concrete wall or close to the most structurally sound portion of a home is recommended. Avoid storing survival gear in basement or attic areas with weak or frail stairs. It is more common than not for a disaster to interrupt electricity. Plan on the need for flashlights to access the kit. In addition to storing light necessities in the kit, each member of the family should have a flashlight in their bedroom. Teach children how to use the flashlights. Check each device monthly to be sure that they are in good working condition. Do not assume that you will be at home when a disaster hits. The Department of Homeland Security’s FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) recommends that citizens have emergency kits and survival gear at home, the office and in the vehicle. This will ensure full preparedness for a citizen who is at home, work or commuting when a disaster occurs. Where do you store your emergency survival kit?
