Each year, hurricanes threaten the coastlines and, if strong enough, require mandatory evacuations. Time is of the essence when an evacuation is ordered and it is vital you have everything prepared ahead of time.

In some cases, you may only have a matter of minutes to escape your home, and if you aren’t prepared, then crucial information and supplies could be left.

Whether you are evacuating due to a wildfire or hurricane, having a checklist to run through will keep things organized and running smoothly so you can evacuate swiftly.
