Create an Evacuation Plan
Fill your car's gas tank. If you must evacuate, you don't want to have to stop to refill. Have a location for family members to meet and make sure everyone in the family knows your plans.
In addition, pack up at least one change of clothes and footwear for each family member. Rain gear, blankets or sleeping bags may also come in handy.
