Last time we evacuated the fire was 100m away before we knew so everyone jumped in the car barefoot I had just gotten home from work so was in the shower so I left in undies and a t shirt. In the boot of both cars are my SES overalls and boots.
    Good idea about already having some clothes packed. I can spare a few bits and pieces for each of us.

    Was talking to some mums at play group this morning (one a neighbour) and it sounded just mad last time as the first they saw were flames on the hill and 5 mins later there were smaller ones in each direction!

    In January we left with insurance policy, dogs, 20 cricket shirts,two saddles and the clothes we were wearing.
    I think a fire blanket in the car and water would be a good idea too.
    I'm keeping all our documents at my sisters in town this summer so we don't have to think about grabbing them

    Another thing to do with documents is scan and email to yourself / relative so you always have access to that information.

    I am in suburbia but my dad and step mum are on acreage in a high risk area. They have a bag kept in the boot of each car with a change of clothes, mini toiletries, bottle of water, muesli bars and some dog biscuits. Then the tub is kept inside with important documents.
