ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

panic room

A panic room is a safe place inside your home. In the event of an emergency, you can go to the panic room for safety. It's like a secret hideout! The walls are usually made of strong materials like metal or concrete and it has a thick, heavy door with a lock. Inside, there is usually a phone, food and water, first aid supplies, and maybe something to help keep whoever is inside safe like a security camera.
