I keep a sealed bottle of water, a tea towel (for emergency capture if needed - and it will probably be needed) and a plastic container of food inside my evacuation cage. The cage is decked out with several layers of paper on the bottom, one secure perch and two empty, clean dishes. I then wrap it in a garbage bag and seal tight to keep it clean and then put it in the shed. On catastrophic or severe fire danger days, I bring the cage up to the house and check the supplies. It's important to have it ready to go immediately, and plan for your birds to have other ideas.
