    Super high winds last night and this morning. No surprise that fires would work their way to the city. Yes, a few bags ready to go. Birth & Marriage certificates fit laptop bags. Haven't worn my Key Safe and Leatherman in a long time. S&W also.

    If you have time, take a picture of every room in your house. We did that when a wildfire burned our house in 2003, and it really helped with the insurance company. Hopefully you will never need it!

    @ran23 Glad to hear that you could return safely to your unaffected home!

    Some other things that came to my mind (and I put them on my to-do list as well):
    • If not available electronically anyhow, scan also receipts / invoices for your more expensive stuff (TV, laptop, e-bike, etc.) - this is also what insurance companies may be asking for ("When did you buy this and what have you paid?").
    • Before leaving the house switch off any non-essential electronic equipment (A/C, TV, etc.) and remove the plug from the power socket (also some electricians vote against this last step because this may have a counter-effect in case a strike hits and the case is not grounded). This should help the power utility companies to re-power their network after a failure as the total consumption load would be less, AFAIK.
    • What about gas and water utilities? Shut them off as well?
    • Close any window and door, use window blinds where feasible?
    • Leave your mobile phone number written in LARGE NUMBERS on a easily spotted place inside your home, so if a cop or the fire fighters need to open your home they can call you and ask if you are all at a safe location (which avoids unnecessary SAR operations), or can ask for other information.
