Replacing Documents After a Disaster

We often talk about having a bugout bag that includes a folder with important documents, but despite your preparations and efforts to protect them, sometimes disaster strikes quickly and unexpectedly, and those documents are lost.

For example, the fires in Northern California moved so rapidly that some people fled from their homes without even a moment to put on their shoes.
