Keep These Items Near Your Bed

What would happen if there was a fire in your home in the middle of the night and you needed to evacuate out the window of your bedroom?  Would you be able to easily grab everything you need in the event that your house burned to the ground and you wouldn't be able to go back in and retrieve anything else?  Consider having these items within easy reach of your bed, ready to grab and go at a moment's notice:

  • Shoes and socks
  • Complete change of clothes/jacket
  • Wallet/cell phone/keys (ie: EDC bag)
  • Firearm/extra magazine
  • Thumb drive back-up of all of your computer files
  • Leather work gloves
  • Necessary medications/copy of prescriptions
  • Video of home inventory
  • Flashlight
  • Cash/credit cards
  • Emergency whistle
  • Copy of all important documents (passport, car titles, etc) on thumb drive
  • Bug Out Bag
In the event of a house fire, pretty much everything you need can be easily replaced with a trip to the store but if you are literally left homeless, you don't want to be left homeless in your pajamas and slippers.  You want to be able to escape your home with things that are vitally necessary to get yourself to a hotel, submit an insurance claim, and restart your life from nothing.
