Prepare for Emergencies in Every Room

Posted on February 3rd, 2016 by Alert Protective

Your home security and fire alarm system helps deter criminals and alert you in the event of a break-in or fire. However, there are also steps you can take throughout your home that can also minimize damages brought on by an emergency. We take you through your home, room by room, to show you what measures you can put in place to keep your family safe.

The Kitchen:

  • A list of emergency phone numbers including the local police and fire departments, Poison Control Centers, family members, neighbors, etc.
  • Enough food and water to last three to five days in case you are ever in a situation where you are unable to leave your home for food.
  • A fire extinguisher, as around 45% of all house fires involve cooking-related incidents.

The Living Room:

  • A weather radio, in the event local cell phone service is interrupted in a weather-related emergency.
  • A corded, landline phone to reach an emergency hotline if the power is out and you are experiencing a crisis.


  • A flashlight near each bed.
  • Extra blankets in case the power goes out during winter.
  • Emergency escape ladders to get out of the house through a window in an emergency situation.
  • Shoes in case you need to get out fast.


  • A first aid kit in each bathroom that is well-stocked with bandages, salve, emergency medication and other such supplies.

Every Room:

  • Emergency lighting such as battery-operated flashlights or lanterns that will come in handy, as you never know where you will be when a crisis occurs.
