This is an extraordinary look into the chaos and trauma of the evacuation. Truckee Police Chief Rob Leftwich discusses the evacuation. One of the most poignant comments he made was:
"People have to be self reliant, they need to have their own evacuation plans, their own personal plans."
Equally striking was when people were told to get out of their cars and evacuate on foot. It reinforces the need to have the ability to evacuate your car with a go bag that has mobility.
