Evacuation Checklist and Lessons Learned



Whether it is fire, flood, hurricane or any other reason you need to evacuate, having a 1- page plan reduces stress and helps you to get out quickly and with a little less stress.

Having lived in a fire-prone area for many years, the following checklist has evolved with four evacuations.  It is one-page and organized by the amount of notice you have to leave.  print several copies, leave one taped to the inside of your front door.  If you live with others, assign tasks to certain people.

This week’s podcast is a journal entry about the last time we had to evacuate.  It describes what we went through, the decisions we made and the lessons learned.
