Mandatory Four “Under the Bed” Preparedness Items

These are the Mandatory Four “Under the Bed” preparedness items suggested if any disaster takes place, besides the obvious Emergency Kit.

1. Pry bar – To open jammed doors or remove windows to escape.

2. Spare Shoes – Wrap a spare pair of shoe in a plastic bag. Broken glass and debris may be present on the bedroom floor or other floors as you search for others and check for the smell of gas indicating a gas leak.     Cut feet are the most common injury after an earthquake

3. Light – Keep a lightstick (mine safe- non-sparking flashlight) available and use it as you check for gas leaks around your home. DO NOT use a regular flashlight which  could cause a spark and explosion until you are sure there is no gas leak.

4. Heavy Duty Work Gloves – To brush away glass and debris.
