We had a bit of excitement at the office recently. The building was suddenly filled with the overpower scent of methane gas. We told the smokers to hide their lighters, threw open all the doors, evacuated and called the fire department. All is well, but our unexpected evacuation gave me a chance to think about what was important enough to grab in an emergency.
It's a good thing it wasn't too big of an emergency because I grabbed pretty much everything. Computer and power cord, both cell phones, purse, ipod and speakers, notebook, lunch bag, and even my water bottle. I hope than a real emergency I'd focus on a fewer items but I don't really see myself walking out with out my purse, phone, keys, computer and ipod.
I know this isn't what we are taught to do in case of an emergency, but I seem to be the kind of girl who doesn't pack light. Could you walk out with nothing, traveling light like the butterfly above, or would you grab a few things as you exited?
