Around here, there is often talk about having a kit ready for evacuation with important papers and pictures and such. But when it comes time to evacuate, deciding what you need is really more difficult than you would think. I know this first hand after evacuating my home on Monday. As we were sitting safely at a friend's home I kept thinking about all the things I could have brought. It was intimidating when the notice to evacuate came and it was hard to think at that time what to take. So now, I am trying to think about calmly what I would take if I was evacuate again. Here is my list:
1. My kids and husband
5. bank statements/checks/credit cards
6. birth certificates and S.S. cards
8. sleeping bags
10. board games/card games
11. a book or two
That is all I can think about right now.
What would you take in an emergency evacuation???
