Idea Description

If you live in earthquake country, don't store anything above shoulder level that would kill you if it fell on top of your head--save that space for spare blankets, empty backpacks, toilet paper, etc. Make sure you've anchored large furnishings to the wall so they won't topple on you. Leave hanging plants for homes not in earthquake country--they swing into windows and cause glass to fly everywhere. Keep a battery-lamp--candles get dangerous with gaslines broken. Keep liquid iodine to purify water if the source gets compromised.
