Here's a link to the "Ready, Set Go" program.  :2thumbsup:

Disasters and evacuations don't conveniently schedule themselves. Be prepared.  :)

Thanks Kathy.  I have an emergency list and I have already packed for evacuation, but there are many items on the list that I didn't think about!

In my first evacuation, the Sheep Fire of 2009, I thought I was ready. Kid, pets, computers, medications, a few irreplaceable items.

And I forgot pants.

Pants.

Once we reached safety, I had to go to Target.

For pants.

We learned a few things from the Sheep and Blue Cut fires, too.  If you are staying in a hotel/motel, make the reservation NOW.  Trying figure out where to go, particularly with pets, is added stress you don't need.  That, and everyone else is trying to do the same thing.  It might be better to be farther away, than to be close to home.

Remember cat/dog beds, litter boxes, litter scoops, dry and wet food, water bowls.  Otherwise, it's another Target or Walmart run.

Stay safe my friends.  Much strength and prayers from our home to yours.

Peace.
