You've gathered your 72-Hour emergency kit supplies, so now it is time to think about where you will safely store your kits. Here are my thoughts.
• Put shelves in the closet. I bought a Rubbermaid shelf.

• Move less important items out of an existing closet and into other areas of your home.
• Hang an Emergency Evacuation List in the closet so family members know what to grab first.
72-hour kits (food, water, clothing, personal supplies, flashlight, radio, small first aid kit, etc.)
baby diaper bag
blankets (ours are in air compression bag)
important documents (copied or scanned)
coat or jacket
