“If your house was burning down, what three items would you take with you?”
This hypothetical question has probably crossed your mind at some point with varying scenarios, and everyone always questions what they would find most important. Usually, responses reflect sentimental items such as photos or videos. However, when faced with an evacuation in real life, there usually isn’t time to think of what you would ideally take. Recently, we saw the devastation caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma as well as multiple wildfires in California. As thousands of people left their workplaces and homes, they were faced with making split second decisions on what they needed to grab before they left. Many of these victims lost their personal identification documents.
