Ready to evacuate

OK, the active fires are one county away so I have the house and car titles, the insurance papers, checkbooks, and credit cards packed in the van. The cats are inside and the carriers are ready; cat food and litter in the van. All our pictures are on a portable hard drive in the safety deposit box at the bank. Suitcases with clothes and shoes, quilts and pillows are ready to move. Portable radio and batteries, camera. DH medicine.
I am on a first name basis with Wendy at the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office. She says that the smoke which came rolling in about 90 minutes ago is from the fires in Montgomery county and that there are no fires currently in our area.

What am I forgetting to get ready if we do have to evacuate?

It looks like they have the Montgomery County fires contained and the smoke is greatly diminished. If we have to evacuate, at least I'm ready.

Your good-sense preparations should be a lesson to us all. I sincerely hope that you won't have to rely on them, but thanks for the lesson on what we all should be considering for various kinds of emergencies.
