Because we won't be out in the community for the next several weeks, the Tahoe Network is sending out weekly tips on how to prepare for wildfire inside your home.

This Week's Tip: Create a Go-Bag

Some of you have been thinking about making your emergency Go-Bag for months, and now is the perfect time to do it. A Go-Bag is an evacuation bag that contains a three-day supply of items you would need to safely evacuate your home. These bags are prepared in advance, before an emergency, and are kept in an easily accessible place.

When creating your Go-Bag, first add the essentials:

  • Cash and extra credit cards
  • Medications and prescription glasses
  • Water and non-perishable food
  • Personal toiletries and clothing
  • Flashlight and batteries
  • First-Aid kit
  • Pet necessities

Next, add some additional items:

  • Hand sanitizer or wipes
  • Books and magazines
  • Trash bags
  • Rain poncho
  • Blankets
  • Laundry detergent
  • Rubber gloves
