Rich Cream: I thought the key was indented into the felt so it couldn't be for the box itself. But, oh well./Fail on me. Oh, the woe.
PlasticMoby: What's with the key?
HotWingAgenda: If I ever have to burgle someone's house, I'll just head straight for the "go bag" filled with all of their most valuable and irreplaceable property, that so many Farkers apparently have sitting next to their front doors.
Flint Ironstag: I suppose one of the twins....
Vangor: I hope my guinea pig. Little guy is stuck in a cage and would be unable to escape as would a cat or dog. Unfortunately, my first thought was my usb drive of education and personal documents which, while useful, is replaceable in some manner unlike the piggle.
knowless: My fire box, which is designed for this purpose, if i had a family my answer of course would be different.
blueviking: Kanemano: I have a go bag with passport, cash, and credit cards.a friend of mine's house burnt down and I learnt from them that not having ID in America is a nightmareAnd my husband's going to think I'm even more paranoid, now...damn. Thanks for the idea. We live out in the country and the FD is volunteer, most likely there'll be jack all left by the time they get there.Provided that the pets and hubby are out, I'd take my flash drive case.

More than once my old department got a call soon enough and did the right things to save mobile homes.If you've never seen a trailer burn, it is pretty damn impressive. All that pressboard and formaldehyde soaked paneling are borderline explosive.

brap: I had a fire in my apartment building about a year ago and I spent my time banging on everyone's doors and telling them to get the hell out of my building. I didn't really think about stuff, so I guess in the heat of the moment, nothing really matters exept people and what they decide they need.
swamp_of_dumb: As someone whose house burnt in February, I'm getting a kic...wait. No I'm not.There is little worse than having your house burn. With all the electronics, rugs, and plastics it is a toxic hellhole. Get your ass out of the house. Stopping for personal crap or pets will more than likely get you killed.Mrs. S_O_D was in the house 20 minutes before it went up. Her phone was turned off because of workplace rules and there is NO way to get ahold of her workplace (her manager had it explained in explicit terms why her phone will be on at all times in the future.) When I got the call that my house was burning and couldn't get ahold of her, I drove from Camden to Belfast in 7 1/2 minutes.NSCSB./only thing I miss are the pets
olddeegee: After family, my 1973 Telecaster, my hard drives that have all family pictures, movies, and important documents.
Rich Cream: taurusowner: My bug out kit with my gold and silver inside.Yours is that readily accessible? Mine's hidden away in the basement. Take too long to get it in a rushed situation. Where's yours?/stop, think
drewogatory: rev. dave
kiwimoogle84: My "box of important stuff."Some might argue that isn't one thing, but it's one box. It has my entire life in it. Photo albums, my will, my late husband's death certificate, social security card, insurance policy information, birth certificate, letters from my grandmother, etc.It's in my closet and if I had just that ONE box, I could start over and rebuild my life.
Last Man on Earth: Subby's mom.
