Hey! You can't go that way!

When The Best Evacuation Route Is A Detour

I attended a debrief for all the CERT Area Leaders last week, and the Chief of Police talked about evacuation routes and how sometimes the City Leaders will make changes to traffic patterns to aid in their process to get people to safety. Those decisions may hamper your original evacuation route to get out of the danger zone.

Do you have an evacuation route planned?

Do you have an alternate route?

Do you have an alternate to your alternate?

How much gas will it take to get to your bug-out location?

Does your car ALWAYS have that much gas in the tank?

Now, for the Tuesday Train!!
I'm co-hosting the Tuesday Train @ My Mad Mind, so today the train is departing from a different depot! Be sure to follow My Mad MindMe and the other co-hosts: The House on the Corner, and With "Faith, Family, and Friends!"
While you're at it, be sure to swing over and see Boobies and the Follow Me Back Tuesday hop.

  12. Hello new 'Tuesday Train' hop co host. Firstly thank you for dropping by my blog yesterday and commenting. Secondly I am your latest follower/fan/admirer. Thirdly thank you for hosting what is my favourite hop of the week.
    Always fun to meet new blogs. Loved your profile intro...used to have a big gas guzzling Mercedes and got lambasted for it even though it was nice and economical.
    I'm just linking up as it's lunchtime here and I hope to visit a few blogs before Hubby gets fractious about his lunch.
    Great to meet you.
