Emergency Planning: Colorado Fires, Evacuations and Related Matters
Notes to the unprepared:
The highways may be closed. Do you have an alternative route planned?
Do you have enough fuel for that alternative route? Maps? Provisions? Safety gear?
Do you have Emergency BOB's ready?
Do you include water and provisions? Toilet paper?
That's a very minor list based on news reports today from the Colorado Springs Waldo Canyon Fire:
Gasoline stations are out of gas;
Stores are out of water, many staples, and toilet paper.......:gah:
I shudder in disbelief. The news reports today were entertaining, frightening, amusing and disheartening.
