Put together your emergency supply kit long before a wildfire or other disaster occurs and keep it easily accessible so you can take it with you when you have to evacuate.
Always keep a sturdy pair of shoes and a flashlight near your bed and handy in case of a sudden evacuation at night.
What is an Family Emergency BinderUnlike a Home Management Binder which includes all things about running your home from scheduling chores to home warranty repairs to everything under the sun, the Family Emergency Binder is geared specifically to managing your family in the case of an emergency.
You may find that being uprooted by a local emergency means having to prove who you are to get emergency resources.
Our immediate need emergency binder is a 1″ binder with all that we would have to have if we had to leave in an emergency. Because lives are uprooted during localized emergencies, you may only have one or two pieces of any of the important binders, bags, etc.


While we’ve been taught to keep all of our important documents in a bank safe deposit vault, it may not be easily accessible in a state of emergency. Granted, coding the copies of your vital documents may be hard, but you can disguise your phone numbers, accounts and passwords to hint at what it should be instead of being outright.
Cyber Emergency Binder – an alternative to a physical binderNot every localized emergency means that there will be no electricity, internet access or access to printers, computers, etc. Even if you do keep a physical one, having one available in downloadable format may make its access easy if you lose your binder along the way and need to get to those important documents and have access to a computer.Or load that information onto a thumb drive that you can tuck into a pocket on the way out the door.
Some of these will have the basic lists to record your information for your Vital Family Emergency Binder and move on to full Emergency Planning Systems.My favorite system is that from Self Reliant School called the Preparedness Planner and Record Keeper. I already have an emergency binder but I went through and compared mine with what you have listed out and I ended up rearranging some of mine and adding some things to mine.


In an emergency you might just have what is on you and I can’t imagine being unable to see while in a stressful situation. We personally don’t have any prescriptions medical wise, but it seems like a really important place to keep this sort of thing.
