Where Should I Store My 72 Hour Kit?

by ben 28 Apr 2010
A big fear that I have with emergency preparedness is having the food and water storage that I need but not being able to access it in a crisis. What happens if a disaster strikes while at work or driving around? What would I do then? What is the purpose of having a 72-hour kit if I can’t get to it? Today, we will be providing you with ideal locations to store your reserves. Where to Store 72 Hour Kit

Your Coat Closet

The majority of homes will have a coat closet near the door. To keep things organized, I have hooked the top loop of the backpack through a hanger and kept it to the side of everything else. Not only does this save space, it is also easy to find. When you’re dealing with a grab-and-go situation, time is of the essence and you don’t want to be shuffling under boxes to find your 72-hour survival kit. The key is to make it as easy as possible so that you don’t have to deal with delays. Where to Store 72 Hour Kit

Underneath Your Bed

We never know when a disaster strikes, especially if it happens in the middle of the night. Store your emergency kit underneath your bed... It’s never a bad idea to keep a warm jacket and pair of shoes close too. Where to Store 72 Hour Kit

Near or Under Your Work Desk

Since we spend about one-third or 30 percent of our life at work1, make sure to keep a survival kit near your desk at all times. Personally, I refresh my reserves every year. Usually, it’s because I find myself craving a high-calorie snack yet lack the willpower to get out of my chair. Either way, always make sure you have at least a 3 days supply of food and water with you. Where to Store 72 Hour Kit

Your Car

We live in a day and age where having a car or truck is an absolute necessity. In an emergency situation where we need to evacuate, having a bug-out-bag or 72-hour kit already packed will save you time. Ready Store has made it even more convenient for emergency preppers by providing an Auto Emergency Kit. Since this kit is stored in a duffel bag, some of our customers recommend storing the items in separate containers or plastic bags if you don’t want to hear it clunk around in the trunk. Keep in mind, the food and water need to be rotated often since cars experience high temperatures during the summer. Keep in mind, everyone's situation is different. You might now have a car or the extra closet space. All we can do is use our best judgement of our circumstances and plan where to store your 72-hour kit.
