Do You Have a Financial First Aid Kit?
The recent string of deadly tornadoes may have you thinking more about your financial protection plan.
In 2012,¬†Operation HOPE¬†and¬†FEMA¬†collaborated to put together what they call an¬†Emergency Financial First Aid Kit. Here are tips from FEMA for making sure things are in order before disaster strikes:
- Identify your important documents and place them in a safe space: You can use the¬†Safeguarding Your Valuables¬†activity and Emergency Financial First Aid Kit to help get you started.
- Download phone applications that can help during emergencies: Use the FEMA¬†phone application¬†to access to disaster preparedness, response and recovery resources including disaster assistance.
