The first thing we would take would be our animals. We have crates and leashes in a ready location. The second thing we would take would be our "go pack" which contains copies of important papers, first aid, water, food, extra set of clothing, solar blankets, etc. The third thing we would take is our appointment book.

In a quick evacuation I'd grab the two cats, laptop and external backup drive.

I would take my two go kits. One is my work backpack and the second is my personal backpack. I get home and put all things like my wallet, ID and keys in the work one. I get called out often so it's part of my routine. The third thing I would take would have to be.... my mac.
