So babies, life, changing jobs and generally BS have gotten in my way, but now things are settling down, and I am finding myself in a very different position than I was when I started! I need help with an evacuation plan for 2 adults, a 14m old, a cat, an australian shephard who is my 'survival dog' and a min pin who is... not. I have 72h kits for DH and I, and the baby and aussie. BoB load and go style. I also have a larger 'survival' kit for the family. (it could set up a campsite) As the [email protected] neighbors were shooting fireworks on my roof I realized I should have a solid evacuation plan. I surfed the forum a little, and am not really seeing what I wanted to see, so I'll ask. I'm thinking about having a "graded" system, something like this Plan Echo - Short term evacuation, just for the day. We had a recycle center catch fire and if we were on the other side of the wind we would have needed to leave our house for the day. Plan Delta - Overnight evacuation, take both dogs and the cat/leave the animals with food for one night (for events like injury requiring a hospital stay etc) Plan Charlie - 3-5 Day evacuation, Plan Delta - Evacuate to shelter Plan Alpha - Evacuate to Canada I guess I can't get my thoughts together on what to do with the animals, and the second car for evac. I spend most of my thoughts on hunkering down. Evac is one of those too many variables things. :gaah: Any suggestions? My plans get vaguer the more "hot" the situation.
