Tape & Rope
Emergency tools such as a gas shut-off wrench, multi-function tools, crowbars and survival knives can be invaluable during a disaster. An auto life hammer can be used to break your windshield or cut through your seat belt if you are trapped in your car.
Be sure you store some or all of these tools in your emergency survival kit. Utility shut-off tools should be kept near the valves for quick access.
