Essentials and Valuables To Keep Inside A Safe Room

A safe room is a safe place where you can retreat during a natural disaster or other emergencies. In the event of an earthquake or tornado, the safest place to be is in the center of your home, away from glass, on a lower level, and away from any external walls, especially windows. If a safe room is going to be used as a shelter in the event of a disaster, it’s important to make sure that this room is stocked with the right supplies. A safe room isn’t intended for long-term living; it’s meant to provide temporary protection until help arrives. If you’re planning on using your safe room for more than 24 hours, consider adding basic provisions as well as storing your most valuable possessions.


There should be enough food and water stored in the safe room so that everyone in your family can stay there for up to 72 hours without having to leave for more supplies. Water purification tablets are also helpful in case city water becomes contaminated after an emergency occurs.

First Aid Kit

This should contain bandages, scissors, antiseptic wipes, and other items needed to treat wounds. It’s also a good idea to have extra medicine such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen available. There should also be a fire extinguisher.

Information Tool

You’ll need a battery-powered radio or television with cable or satellite service so you can listen to updates on what’s happening outside.

Flashlight and Batteries

You’ll also need a flashlight, batteries, and candles. A flashlight will allow you to see once the lights go out because of an electrical outage or other disaster situation. Batteries should also be stored in case your flashlight runs out of power before you’re done using it.

Shelter from the Elements

Blankets, sleeping bags, and pillows will keep everybody warm during cold nights and rainy days when you’re holed up inside a safe room during an emergency.

Storing Valuables

You need to store your cash as well as precious metals and coins in the safe room. If you are a crypto investor, then you might have to store your hard wallets as well. You can also store firearms if they are legal as well as anything that holds sentimental value to you. You should also store your essential documents like your marriage and birth certificates.
