With the fires still burning in our listening area we got with officials from Red Cross to help you be ready in the event of an evacuation from your home. We hope you never have to implement this but we would rather be safe than sorry.

    Family Photos

    Make sure you have your precious family and wedding photos ready to scoop up if needed. These pictures are often irreplaceable and are devastating to loose.

    If you have children make sure you have their favorite blanket and/or stuffed animal. Is there something small that you can take with you like a hand held DVD player or other electronic toy? Make sure you have the cords for these devices to make sure you can keep your children's minds off of the conflict going on around them. It won't hurt to have a deck of playing cards on hand.
