(NaturalNews) The Red Cross and other disaster relief agencies advise having supplies and disaster plans in place for survival during hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other unexpected emergencies. Creating a home security safe room can save your life, sustaining you for days afterwards. It can be overwhelming setting up a home security safe room, and many people avoid doing so as a result. Here are some simple guidelines to help you get started and manage this task.

Location

Choose an easily accessible room, closet, hallway or basement with no windows and where all doors can be closed off. It may not be perfect, just do the best you can. Pick a space preferably that has a closet, cupboards or an available storage area. Add shelves and anchor them to the wall. Make sure the room is large enough to accommodate anyone who might be in the house during emergencies, including pets. Add a pet door and train your cats and dogs to use it so they come to you during an emergency.

Think survival

There are only so many outcomes after a disaster, and your emergency response preparedness is critical to how well you thrive. How you stock supplies in your safe room can save your life.

In the event you're injured, but still conscious, you'll need to be able to reach first aid and other critical supplies. Go into your safe room and stand or sit in the place where you think you'd be during a disaster. Everything you stock should radiate outward from where you are, with the most critical needs within reach. Assume the worst while planning your safe room. If you're injured or trapped and can't move, what you grab can save you.

Stocking the safe room for first response emergency preparedness

Plan for a period of about five to seven days when adding supplies. Those things that should be within arms length and immediately available are: a flashlight or lantern, first aid supplies -- including homeopathic Arnica, Aconite, Bryonia, Ignatia and Rescue Remedy-- water, whistle, bell, 100% wool blankets, land-line phone, work gloves, pry bar, emergency food bars, tarp, rope, warm jacket, hat, socks -- in that order.

Emergency management provisions for a safe room

The following is by no means all inclusive or absolute. Adjust for your specific needs. Place heavy, breakable items near the floor.

First aid - Bandages, tape, tourniquet, first aid book, elastic bandages, disinfectant, calendula ointment, arnica cream, homeopathic emergency kit, scissors, tweezers, field surgical kit, Pascalite clay, splints, instant ice and heat packs, hot water bottle, vodka or brandy, pain-killers, alcohol, colloidal silver. Learn how to use these things beforehand.

Pets - Food, bowls, medications, leash, collar with tags and ID, bedding, litter

Clothing - Full change of clothes, boots

Toiletries - Toilet paper, wipes, potty bucket with lid, plastic bags, wash cloth, towels, toothbrush, soap, medications, spare eye glasses, bug spray, sun lotion,

Food - Canned fruits, veggies, meats or fish, apple cider vinegar, dried fruits, can opener, emergency bars, utensils, paper plates, cups, sharp knife, scissors, dish soap, propane stove, extra propane bottles, cooking pot, skillet

General supplies - Multi-tool, bleach, tape, crank radio, compass, area map, shovel, flares, large trash bags, hammer, pliers, house keys, personal ID, insurance policies, thumb drive with pictures of house and contents, money, bullion coins, gun, 250 rounds ammo

The most important thing to remember is to regain your calm as quickly as possible after a disaster. If you've built a home security safe room ahead of time, you'll be in a much better position to do so and ensure your family's survival.
