Forest-fires have been big stories in the news the past few months with Colorado in particular being hit hard. Many people had been forced from their homes as the fires advanced out of control. Of course the potential threat of forest-fires is yet another reason to prepare.
In most cases when a forest-fire threatens your home you are going to be forced to evacuate your home. Usually you will have some advanced warning before this happens, however that is not always the case. Either way, having a good bug out bag is vital. All of the items in that bug out bag are important of course, but in the instances of floods, tornadoes, forest-fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters, having copies of important documents such as proof of insurance, identification, residence and bank information are equally important.
