Many potential emergencies may require you to evacuate your home. Some may be short, others longer and still others may prevent you from returning at all. Despite your displacement, many facets of normal life continue. Bills need to be paid, purchases need to be made, bank accounts need to be accessed and memories and important records need to be preserved. If forced to evacuate your home quickly, you won’t have time to gather all of your important files, pictures, and other items. Plan ahead now by gathering your documents so when needed, they are already together and can be grabbed quickly.


I have assembled a Red File!


A Red File is a binder or folder with all your important documents in one place. I keep mine in a fire safe so it is protected from fire but also easily accessible in case I am forced to evacuate, Here are some pictures of a sample Red File and various items that can be included.
