From reading the title of this you might be extremely confused as to what we mean by keeping backup in your garage. What we are saying is that it is very important to have a supply of back up water, food, blankets, etc in case of emergencies. Your garage is one of the best places you can store you back up supplies.
A garage is actually a great place to store a lot of things, but you want to also make sure to keep it organized so that you can find what you need in a pinch, especially your back up emergency supplies. That is why you should take the time to figure out a plan in case of an emergency and then organize your garage in a way that makes it easy to get to that stash in the dark. You will probably want to keep all of the supplies close to the door from the house into the garage so you can quickly find it and light some candles.
Keeping the entire garage organized will be best for an emergency as well because it will ensure that you don’t trip or fall over anything in the dark if the power goes out at night. This can be an even bigger issue if you are not able to open the garage door because it will be very dark in the garage. Stay safe and be prepared!
