Bug out Back Documents

10/19/2018 (Permalink)

When it is time to either evacuate or bug out, depending on the situation or how you use the terminology in your house, people often forget about the documents. Most people think about where they are going, food they will need and fuel for how they are going to get there. 

Documents are some of the most important things to bring because if a hurricane or major storm hits, they may not be there when you come back to your residence, or where ever you keep your documents. 

Your driver’s license - You will need this to check into a hotel, any kind of lodging, or a shelters sometimes to keep track of who is there.

Education certificates - These are documents that are a hassle to replace and often take an extended amount of time.

Bank Information and Passwords - If you are not a part of a nationwide bank such as Wells Fargo or many others you need to have this on hand so you have access to funds in this emergency situation. 

Social Security Card - This is another document that you will need if you have a medical emergency and is incredibly difficult to replace.

Credit Card Information - This goes along with the Bank information. Credit cards will sometimes still work if debit cards will not.

Adoption Papers - These papers come in handy in almost any situation when an emergency arises.

Pet documents -  these should include the adoption papers and any shot records you have. Hotels and boarding places often ask for these and will not accept your pet without them.

Medical and Dental Information- These are self explanatory.

marriage certificate - This document is just as hard to get as a new social security card or drivers license can be.

Religious Certificates - these are miscellaneous docs important to each individual, not specific. 

Your Will - if you have one.

stock certificates - If you have these available, most things have moved to online. 

business registration (if you have one) - This will be really important in a storm situation to be able to check on the physical property to have proof that you can go on the premises. 

Passport - Same as Social Security Card.

Concealed Weapon permits - You should always have this on hand. 

Library Cards – have a backup of the numbers on your phone

Medicare documents - Any healthcare documents need to go with you in the event of a medical emergency.

Website passwords and anything else that is important to you.
