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.
Below is a link that will take you to an earlier blog that details important items to be included in your personal bug out bag. Pay close attention to the last category regarding “important documents”. That category is often overlooked. Don’t let it be. Protect yourself and make the days following a natural disaster easier on you and your family by maintaining copies of those important documents in your preparedness planning.
