Evacuation lists

Hopefully this can get some people started on making a disaster plan. You do not need to live in the South to have an evacuation plan. Every family should have one. You just never know. If you have anything to add to the list, by all means leave it in the comments. I keep the master list on my computer. A copy is in my home binder.
