As dad mentioned the first aid kit location in the video is very poor. I can think of a few things that might happen that would make me unable to reach way up over my head to get at it. Mine is actually on the floor. the top is tight enough for safety but loose enough to be removed with one trembling hand. It is a $1 rubber-maid-like shoe box sized container.
My phone is also located quite low and near the exit to outdoors per an article by folks who know about such things. The logic there is similar to the first aid kit location. Low enough to reach in case I've . . . . wait for it . . . "fallen and I can't get up" . It is by the door for that last speed dial call to 911 as I exit the burning building (long handset cord too). The low and easily accessible locations serve other scenarios but, you get the idea.
Easily accessible and in non-changing and known locations:
- first aid kit
- fire extinguishers
Be safe, be diligent, don't be a hack and don't procrastinate. If you have not covered these things, do so now, please .
