Be sure to include a map marked with at least 2 evacuation routes and any shelter-in-place spots that you’ve identified ahead of time. It's a good idea to pack local maps too as cell towers (and GPS) may be out of commission.

It's also a really good idea to have an extra set of car, house and RV keys, credit cards, cash or traveler’s checks in your Go Bag.
