When Candace and Louis Brad were evacuated from their home in the Boulder County foothills due to the Fourmile Canyon Fire of 2010, it was the fourth evacuation they had experienced. In this recording that was used in the making of the film PACKED, they discuss the process of evacuation, how they decided what to take with them, how their process has evolved over time, helping a neighbor, and a few surprises (they ended up without their computer power cord or keyboard, but with many pairs of Louis’ shoes and lots of dog toys).
