  • Your "Emergency pack"
  • Change of warm clothing and blankets
  • Toiletries and everyday medicines
  • If appropriate, baby clothing, nappies and associated toiletries
  • Special foods
  • Important documents, immediate valuables and important telephone numbers of friends and relatives
  • Baskets or cages and leads for pets
  • Personal items such as glasses, mobile telephone, keys, cash or credit cards
