Practicing evacuation

Angela at Food Storage and Survival recently posted a great entry on practicing evacuations with the family:

When it came time for the activity, I told everyone that we were going to pretend that we were sitting around the house together when we got a phone call or someone came to the door and the local dam was breaking and we had 10 minutes to get out of our house.  We may or may not return to it and if we return the things we left could very likely be damaged or destroyed.  In the meantime, we’re evacuating to the next town or possibly farther, but society will still be intact where we’re headed.  What are you going to take?  Ready?  Go.

Read the whole thing. There are some excellent lessons to be learned in it. I think our family may do this soon.
