Fire damage to a building in Anaheim.

What if I Need to Evacuate My home?

Fire season is in full effect and multiple fires have started across the state of California causing fire damage to residences and businesses. Here at SERVPRO of NE Long Beach/Lakewood we work on fire restorations and repair when a disaster strikes. We also know it's extremely important to get together an Emergency Evacuation Kit. We've compiled some helpful tips for putting together an evacuation kit. It is important to update your emergency kits every year to adjust to new needs and replace anything that has expired. Ready.gov suggests you have kits ready in your home, car, and at work because you never know when a fire will cause an evacuation.

What to Pack inside the Kit:

  • Scan and save all important documents on a flash drive

These include:

  • Driver’s license
  • The deed to your house
  • Your will and/or trust
  • Proof of insurance
  • Medical records
  • Passport
  • Social security cards
  • Birth certificates
  • Pet paperwork
