1. Your identification
2. Your medications/prescriptions
3. Any important documents you might have or need (birth certificates, marriage certificates, insurance policies etc)
4. Any emergency supplies you need, including food and water
5. A small bag with a change of clothes and toiletries
6. Pet supplies (and your pets!)
*UPDATED on 1/25/18:
Residents and businesses impacted by the Creek, Rye and Skirball fires can now apply for federal disaster assistance online at this website or by calling 800-621-3362.
DONATING TO FIRE VICTIMS
During and after disasters, the most valuable donation you can make is often donating money to official organizations such as the Red Cross, because it provides the most flexibility for purchasing items needed for disaster victims. Check before dropping off any donation goods to shelters or first responders, as they can become overwhelmed with donations they can't use.
