May I suggest a modification to wood stacking? If stacked above the house on a hill, be sure it is stacked in such a way that if it does catch fire pieces cannot roll toward the house. We have ours slightly above but way to the side of the house after our Fire Department pointed this out.

I wanted to be sure newcomers were aware of this topic with checklists and suggestions for wildfire preparedness. Also a good reminder for non-newbies.

We did a spread sheet with model &serial numbers of all electronics; model and serial numbers of all guns; document all valuables; then detailed pics of all. Also noted purchase price and ~ date of purchase. One copy of spreadsheet in safe at home, one copy in safe deposit box at the bank. Also thumb drive in each place as well that has pics of home, outbuildings, belongings,valuables and pictures of our pets.

Copy's of marriage certificate, military discharge papers, birthcert's and any other legal docs etc. Originals in safe deposit box and copies in safe at home.

I did this after my sister's house burned. She lost everything she had. Three years later she is still fighting with insurancce company on personal property, as she had no records to speak of.

Whave an "In Case of Emergency" sign posted near front door and garage door. Lists all of our pets with a description of each, our names and phone numbers for work and cell.

And also have several leashes hanging near entrance to house in case someone comes on our property to remove our furbabies. Cat carriet close at hand for same reason.

We get into the habit of loading our emergency evac stuff, extra clothes, precious family treasures and old photos etc in our camper for easy getaway. They pretty much stay in the camper during the entire fire season. Also tupperware containers of dog food and doggy medicine. I rotate out everyfew months while in storage.

I just pray for all of those poor folks who have lost their homes in the last two days. :praying:

Some really great list ideas. One puzzles me.....marriage certificate. I have no idea where ours is (it was many many years ago) and I have never had any need for it in all these years.
