We spend 30% of our time in bed, so it’s a good idea to have some gear nearby! Most emergencies will give you a chance to escape, but a major earthquake or extreme flash flood could trap you in your bedroom. For the less extreme nighttime disasters, you’ll be glad to have that flashlight on hand, in any case.

Making sure you have everything you’ll need close to you in an event of an emergency can be stressful, so we’ve created this interactive bedside PPE checklist for you! We’ve divided up supplies into two categories: essential and bonus, so you can focus on what’s most important.
