What One Possession Would You Retain In an Emergency?

Your Prized Possession

I pray this doesnt happen but supposing you get home one day and your house is caught in a wild fire (no one at home though) but u had the opportunity to take just one thing out (within seconds). What would you go for?

Your credentials and imporatant papers... should be with your lawyer/bank. Don't keep stuffs like that at home. It's bad.

Credit card is no big deal.. u'll get a new one. As long u tell them the former one is burnt.

I think if confronted with a sudden, life threathening emergency, we will not be looking for anything to save, but yourself. So "I" am the only one posession I will retain. I believe once the disaster is over, my secured brain will be able to perform a disaster recovery (or Business continuity planning) for me to get started again.

I'd grab my purse.

Any and every emergency that I've encountered, I've always grabbed my purse. Leave the coat, leave the food, leave everything else but my purse. . . . . ok, once I grabbed my shoes as well only because I was wearing heels and I couldn't run fast enough in them.

I would grab my purse because in it contains:

My money

My credit cards

My driver's license

the keys to my house and car

My work building pass

My cell phone

Some candy and gum

Sunglasses

Matches

Pens

Lip gloss

Lotion

Voters Registration Card

Business Cards and business contact cards

And a few pictures

Yes, all of that in my purse! That's why I'll always think to take it in case of an emergency. It will have almost everything I'll need for immediate survival.
