    Evacuation/Bug Out Document Notebook

    I'll be meeting with my "preparation get-together" ladies next week and wanted to give them a homework assignment to gather copies of important documents into a notebook to take with them if they have to evacuate (I also need to do this, hence the assignment). So my question to you all is what documents do you want copies of if you have to leave your house for whatever reason (fire/flood/teotwawki/etc.). They'd of course be more useful in a short term event, but anyway, here's what I've started with:

    Birth Certificate
    SS Card
    Driver's license
    Vehicle titles
    Marriage License
    Insurance policies--health, house, life, car
    Bank account information (loans/credit cards also?)
    Medical information (what kind?)

    What else? And while we're at it, you can have it as your homework assignment also!

    If you own any stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, you might want to include information on those in this notebook of yours. Also, information on any debt you owe (ie., mortgage, car, or student loans, for instance) might come in handy as well.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    Titles to anything you own. Birth certificates. These are a couple things that come to mind.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    Pictures and Inventory

    A video or still picture set of the entire house. For insurance and reminder of what you have.
    List of firearms and serial numbers.

    I keep a DVD and CD of this stored off site at the kids house's just in case i should lose everything.
    Years ago my bother in law had his house burn to the ground and they had a hard time remembering
    everything that was in the house. AND proving it to the insurance company.

    Between your list and the other posts I would say that is a good list. The only other thing that I can think of is your passport. Even if you are not going to cross any borders, it is an official federal ID.
    If you get to thinkin you're a person of some influence, try orderin' someone else's dog around

    Your Utah carry permit, your Kalifornia carry permit, your Oregon carry permit, your Idaho carry permit, and on and on and on as needed.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    Exclamation Passports are the most important!

    +1 to RDW for the passport suggestion. I would take it even one step further. If you don't have a passport, get one regardless of travel plans. If you do have a passport, renew it before you drop below 6 months. A passport with less than 6 months validity is almost like not having a passport at all. Your passport is kind of one-stop-shopping as far as identification goes. One thing to keep in mind: Buy yourself an RFID blocking carry case at AAA, because all the new passports are chipped "for your safety".

    School records for all family members. Last will and testament. Deeds, titles, and declarations for the homestead so you can prove it's yours if/when you return. Scanned copy of wedding photo. Scanned copy of fingerprints of all family members.
