A Safe Room

A safe room is a room in your house that would be the safest place in your home where you can go to quickly and take shelter. It is great to have one in case of a tornado, bomb attack, hurricane, or any other disaster.
Choose a place in your basement, garage, or a room in your house that has no windows and where you can seal off the door way with plastic and duct tape if you need to.
When you are preparing your safe room think of everything. Think about food, water, warmth, communication, sanitation, ventilation, medical supplies, and even ways to keep everyone entertained.
Have you safe room equipped with enough stuff to sustain you and your family for up to 2 weeks. Make sure that you have a lot of canned food that can be eaten right out of the can cold. You most likely will not be able to cook in your safe room.
Have a radio on hand with plenty of batteries or have a hand crank powered radio. I have a few of them and they are life savers. Plus I do not have to worry about batteries and use the money that I might use on batteries on other items that I want to stockpile, like food!! But, you have to have a good radio in your safe room. It might be your only way to know what is going on in the outside world , if you are in your safe room for any length of time.
Your safe room would also be a great place to store your items that you have been stockpiling. This way of there is an emergency you can go into your safe room and be able to stay safe. (Don't forget weapons, too!)

we live in flats in Spore and our version of the safe room is a utility room which doubles up as a live-in for the domestic helper.
