Grab and Go Evacuation List

 photo from: American Preppers Network

I read many different blogs - not on a daily bases but once or twice a month I drop in and read the latest .  Well today when going through the blog list that I check on once and awhile I came across a GREAT tip.

If you had to evacuate what would you grab?
If you had 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, one hour?  Valerie correctly states that when we are stressed it's hard to think.

If you have it written down you can just grab and go.
I sat down and printed out my own 'grab and go list'.  It will be a bit different for every one.  Valerie gives a very complete list that you can use to help make your own.

It's always good to keep your gas tank 1/2 full to full.  Keep some cash on hand, cash is king and even if the power is down cash still spends.
