I am so excited for this post! This summer I've been revamping my 72 hour kits and other emergency items. We've had a lot of wildfires here in Southern California so it has made me think more about being prepared for evacuations. I'll be sharing some of the projects I've been working on with you here.
One of the items I focused on was an emergency binder: a binder full of all the documentation you might need in an emergency situation. For example, let's say you are evacuated from your house due to a wildfire, hurricane, etc. You most likely will not have a lot of time to search for all the documents you might need to take with you and you may not think of all the things you might need. But if you have your Emergency Binder already created, you just grab it with your 72 hour kits and go.
So I grabbed a binder and started collecting items but I wasn't really sure what to get and it still wasn't very organized. It was just thrown in there haphazardly. I decided I needed something to help me get the binder organized (and cute too... when its cute I'm more motivated!). So we, Stock Up With Shelley and my good friends at Bitty Birdie Designs, created this printable! Now all you have to do is print it out, grab a binder, and follow the simple directions to gather everything you need and keep it organized.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Once you make your binder keep it someplace safe! You do not want someone to walk away with all of the information about you and your family. You should guard it like you would other valuables.
