Emergency preparedness

Hi folks!

What with all the floods and fires and earthquakes lately, I thought I'd ask about disaster preparedness for fish. I lost nearly all my stock during a power outage which occurred while I was out of town this past January. How do you deal with situations like this? I'm extremely attached to my fish. How can I keep them safe during a power outage or other crises? If there was sufficient time to pack some things in an evacuation, how would I transport my fish and keep them going until I could get them back into their tanks?

If those of you out there with emergency plans in place could describe them, please do! I'm interested to hear from folks with simple or elaborate setups, store-bought or DIY. What supplies do you keep on hand, and what equipment do you have set up?

During a nearly 3 day power outage last winter, we used a generator to power the funace fan, refrigerator, a couple room lights and or course the filters and heaters on my tanks.

I guess a good homeowners insurance policy for the rest. :(
