A quarantine room. We should all have one. We should all have a mental plan with the tools and supplies ready to make it happen. We should actually on occasion run a drill and make sure we are 100% covered. I had that all worked out in my old place. But yesterday as I was sitting in class and the instructor was talking about pandemic and sealing your family in a safe room, my heart dropped. I failed to look at a room for quarantine or sealing ourselves in. Today I walked around my new place and looked at every room. I ran the mental list of what I would need and does this room make sense. I am thinking the master bedroom because it has the adjoining bathroom but I am not 100% happy with it. The plan in my old home was to be in the dining/ kitchen area. It would have worked and it was ground floor. If one has to seal themselves into their home, it is not just the doors and windows. It is covering the vents and outlets, making sure everything that can let air in is sealed. Sealing and covering everything was easy in the old place because it was an older home with rooms vs. new open concept homes. Older homes seem to have rooms where it would make the task easier. This new place of mine is an open concept floor plan with a staircase from basement to second floor. I would like to hunker down on a bottom floor because it makes escape easier and defense easier because the staircase is not to my advantage if bad guys decide they are coming up. In order to seal off a ground floor room, I would have to have lots of plastic or plywood that would run from floor to ceiling. I just do not know if it is something that could be easily accomplished. I am also considering sealing off the whole house but that would be real time consuming. So I am asking all you Survival Monkeys, do you have a plan and the supplies to seal your family inside your home in case of pandemic or chemical/toxic blasts? Will you be sealing off your whole house or just one or two rooms?
