Many of our friends have been evacuated because of the Southern California Wildfires. We are far enough away that it is unlikely our neighborhood will be evacuated.
However, I'm flying to the east coast tomorrow for a business trip so we prepared my wife just in case the fire heads in our direction.
Here's what we packed in a suitcase in case there isn't time to fully load up the car:
Food / Dog Food
Pen & Paper
It's unlikely she will be in a survival situation, even if our area is evacuated. There are many evacuation shelters available. However, worst case scenario, she and our puppy can get by safely staying a night by themselves in the car. In addition to the items above, she would also have her purse, cell phone, computer, and chargers with her.
