This is just part of a lengthy, informative, instructional plan for any family… Please click HERE for complete article!
It is unlikely that any documents you choose to include in your kit will keep you alive. However, having them all organized and together can make your life so much easier now and in the event of an emergency. Making insurance claims, searching for missing loved ones (heaven forbid), staying in touch with family and friends, traveling around the country and accessing your financial accounts will all be much easier if you have some essential documents at your fingertips. In addition, having a binder like what I’m about to suggest to you can also make your day to day life easier and more efficient.
I’m simply going to walk you page by page through my “emergency documents binder.” I keep this near our kit, but not in it as I access and use it often. It goes wherever I go so that I can have access to these important documents anytime, anywhere.
The front cover:
Nathan (my husband) and I each have our own prioritized list of what our responsibilities will be when / if we need to evacuate. If we are given 10-30 minutes notice, we start in at the top or the first list and try to get through as much as we can. The stuff at the bottom of the list isn’t as essential as the stuff at the top. If given just a few minutes to evacuate (and doing so on foot), we use the second lists instead. You can read more about our family evacuation plan here. (although I need to edit it a bit online…the printed one is more accurate!)
