Home » Unlabelled » An Example of a Fire Evacuation List
This video tells the story of Jaime Astorga and his family in Colorado who were threatened by a fast moving wild fire. Their family had discussed the need for fire evacuation plans and developed a custom list of items to collect dependent upon the amount of time they had prior to evacuating. They divided their list into 15 minute segments.
It sounds like they were able to gather quite a bit before having to leave. And the best news? Their home was one of a few saved and they will be able to return!
A list like this is a great idea for many situations. Want some ideas for making your own list? Here is a prior post with some ideas: http://iprepared.blogspot.com/2010/08/prioritized-evacuation-list-grab-n-go.html
