National Preparedness Month with Master Lock #sponsored

From hurricanes to tornadoes or fires, every state in the U.S. is vulnerable to some type of emergency weather situation, and just in time for National Preparedness Month, Master Lock is standing by to help families and individuals prepare for any emergency situation.
  1. Stay Informed. Sign up for automated alerts from FEMA and WEA to notify you of any emergency situations happening in your area.
  2. Know the Facts. Understand the terms used by weather anchors and reporters, such as the difference between a watch and a warning. 
  3. Safeguard Your Stuff. Possessions can be replaced, but critical documents are vital to efficient disaster recovery. Gain access to any document by securely uploading them to the Master Lock Vault.    By uploading important documents into this free, secure digital safe deposit box, all items are protected from fire, flood and theft, and can be accessed from any internet connection or mobile device when they are needed most. Currently, only 15 percent of Americans have digital copies saved and stored online*, leaving them at risk in case of a home emergency.
  4. Make a Plan. Almost 50 percent of Americans do not have an evacuation plan and/or shelter, food or water readily available.   Before an emergency happens, sit down with family members and decide how to get in contact with each other, map out evacuation routes for the area, determine a neighborhood, out-of-neighborhood and out-of-town meeting place and practice what to do in the event of an emergency. To allow home access to family members and neighbors if needed, securely store keys outside with a Master Lock 5400D or 5422D Lock Box.
  5. Gather an Emergency Kit. Learn what you need to build an emergency disaster kit so it’s ready when you need it most.  A basic supply kit should include at least one gallon of water per person for at least three days, a three-day supply of non-perishable food for each person, manual can opener, battery-powered or hand-crank radio, flashlight, extra batteries, first aid kit, local maps and cell phone with a charger (or solar charger), according to FEMA.
We keep our home safe and our kids prepared with the Master Lock Storage Security - No. 5423.  We live out in the country and  it is not lie when we were growing up you could just leave an extra key at the neighbor's house.  Our kids each carry a house key and we make sure we are home when the bus comes as well, but you never know...  We want our kids to be able to still get into the house without their keys or mom/dad at home.  This unit is perfect for it.  Teach the kids a code and the key is hidden inside for easy access.  No need to worry!
  • Wall mount key safe provides secure storage of keys or access cards

  • Large buttons for ease of use, even in low light conditions
  • 3-1/8" wide durable metal construction
  • Large internal cavity and removable key hook prevents jamming
