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.
