EVACUATION PREPARATION

BUGGING OUT ON SOMEONE ELSE’S TERMS

It happens with nary a moment’s notice. A train carrying toxic chemicals derails. Floodwaters suddenly begin to rise. Wildfires take a turn and increase in intensity. This isn’t a head-for-thehills-and-hunker-down-in-a-bunker situation, but you do need to beat feet and head for a safer location. Odds are pretty good that the authorities in the area will be nipping at your heels to keep you moving, too.

An emergency evacuation differs from a bugout in a couple of subtle, but important, ways. An evacuation is usually a sudden and immediate event. Not always, of course, such as in the case of a hurricane warning. More often than not, it is something that happens at the drop of a hat. Bugging out, though, is hopefully a more deliberate action taken in response to a deteriorating situation in your area.

Getting stuck in traffic snarls is something to avoid when evacuating.

Next is the length of time involved. An evacuation is typically a temporary situation. You’re leaving and probably doing so in a hurry, but you’ll be back relatively soon. Think of it as a very impromptu “vacation” of sorts. A bugout, on the other hand, is likely to involve a lengthy, if not permanent, stay away from home: You’re heading for the hills, and you’re not looking back.
