Planning and Packing for Evacuations
With the dry heat of August comes the chance of another season of wildfires in California. Last year devastated many families, and as we’re still in the grip of a pandemic, the last thing California needs is more wildfire. We can only hope that people will behave responsibly to keep fires from spreading.
Many people were caught off-guard by last year’s evacuations. Californians lost homes and livelihoods suddenly and with minimal warning. We know now that it is vital to be prepared for an evacuation order and to plan ahead for unexpected issues that can come up.
There’s a long list of preparedness you should be working over. We recommend you concentrate some planning on three vital areas to make sure that you are ready
Prepare yourself. Talk to your boss and your colleagues about ways you can all keep work going, even during the evacuation. Plan increments to do so that you have natural cut-and-run moments worked out.
Prepare your family. Make sure you and your spouse talk about how to do things. Know whether your kids should take a bus home from school or wait to be picked up, and communicate your idea to them.
Prepare your escape plan. You need your car in good working order. That means checking the tire treads, topping up fluids, and no long-ignored engine lights. Also essential is a survival kit with drinking water and snacks, should your vehicle be trapped or stranded somewhere.
The importance of Preventive Maintenance is never quite as straightforward as when there’s a crisis to drive the point home. The misgivings of ignored and missed signs can be fixed with work, but preventive maintenance saves money and helps prevent your car being vulnerable in a crisis.
