    i've been seeing AZ on the news.

    life and the curves it sometimes throws...
    know others have been there in other ways and
    we are going to be there for the aftermath
    and to help as best we can to put it back together.

    the old saying--property can be replaced; lives, not so much.

    on a more practical note--paperwork for ownership ( car titles) and house papers
    esp all your insurance policies. good luck

    Good luck with the evac. I hope the fire spares your home and that your evacuation is a temporary one. My prayers are with you.

    Good luck to you, sir. I agree that you should probably take any papers that can't easily be replaced. My new wife and I are putting together a fireproof file safe at home. We're going to be keeping all our important papers in it, or at least copies, and here pretty soon I'm going to have a portable hard drive in there with all the important data from our computers backed up. The safe itself was only $60 or so and can hold hanging files. It'll be handy to have in case of an emergency. If it works according to plan, we can grab that safe and have all the paperwork and backups of data and pictures. We should probably also think about keeping a decent amount of cash in there. The safe is waterproof and fireproof for half an hour at 1550 degrees Fahrenheit.

    I also heartily agree with arming yourselves. You're going to have your most prized possessions, your family, important paperwork and presumably some money on you. It's important to be protected.

    Don't forget spare gasoline,if you end up in a traffic jam it's very possible any gas stations on the evac route will be sold out

    been there--got that t-shirt--don't want it again. You are obviously savvy enough to recognize all the great advice here. Prayers are with you and your family.
