In the event of an emergency evacuation, deciding what and what not to take with you can be heart wrenching. Luckily, there are a few ways you can store photos that allow you to not risk losing precious family memories.
First, make sure all photos are contained in an easy tote or box for removal. This can be a cardboard or plastic filing box, available from most major chain stores. Remember to keep an extra copy of any photos you have framed on the walls, as trying to carry photo frames with you during an evacuation can be tough.
For digital memories, be sure to keep a backup either online or via an external hard drive unit. If choosing the latter, keep the external photo storage in the same box as the rest of your photos so that it will not be accidentally left behind.
