6.9 Wake Up Call, Part 2: I Forgot Some IMPORTANT Things!

5 Comments

A big “THANK YOU” to my readers!  Thank you for reminding me about some important things I need, and that I left off of my prior list, if there is an earthquake, tornado, super storm, etc. in your area.  If I’ve forgotten anything else, please give me a shout-out!

 

ID – Passport, driver’s license, etc.

 

Other Important documents – Birth certificates, immunization and other medical records, insurance policies, etc.  Keep these in a safe place, stored together, so you can grab them and go, if necessary.

Pictures – stored on a flash drive or CD.  You’re unlikely to be able to grab all your photo albums or even your camera.  But you can store a flash drive (or more) with your important documents, so you can grab them and go, if you need to evacuate.

 

Extra clothes!

Clothes! – If you need to leave your home, do not forget some extra clothing.  I read about one woman’s experience when evacuating her home during the fires in Orange County, CA.  She grabbed her laundry hamper on the way out along with a few other things.  She was sure the evacuation was just a precaution and that they would be back soon.  Their house burned to the ground.  Because she acted on her inspiration, she and her family had a few days’ worth of clothes which helped them get through the first few days after this disastrous change in their circumstances.

Pets! – Make sure that you have food, water, and other necessary supplies for your pets.

Did I get everything? 

If not, please comment below.  I’d love to hear from you!!

  1. Pretty good list. Don’t recall if anyone grabbed any dried beans. 🙂 At least with some water…
