extended survival What you can take in your car
In this scenario you must leave your home but you can DRIVE AWAY. The items you can now take with you are expanded and can make you more comfortable. We are one step above survival mode. Make a Grab and Go List. Write down everything you would like to take with you if you had to leave your home. Then PRIORITIZE the list. When the time comes to evacuate start at the top of the list and grab everything you can until you must leave. If you only have 5 minutes you may only get the first 5 items on the list, but they will be the most important items. If you have an hour, you may be able to grab everything on your list. The critical part is to have a list.
