I want to suggest you gather your important documents emergency binder and have it ready to grab should an unexpected emergency or disaster hit your community or neighborhood. We have seen the rain and snow storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms, fires and so many more unexpected situations this last year. I am sure you have read the same things in the newspaper, seen it on TV or heard it on the radio. Some people only had fifteen minutes to evacuate their properties.
What do I grab, what is important, what is irreplaceable…….? I cannot imagine the stress level in some of those neighborhoods when they were given minutes to leave their home. This is why we must be ready to evacuate at a moments notice. If you have not already done it, start gathering those documents that would prove who you are: birth certificates, college diplomas, bank account numbers, insurance agent names and the companies they represent, to name just a few.
Some things to think about adding to your binder:
Pictures (2 of each family member)
Emergency Contact Information
Bank & Investment Account#’s
Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Graduation & Religious Documents
Copies of driver’s licenses, Original Passports, Concealed Weapons Permits, Social Security Cards & Medicare/Medicaid Cards
Medical & Dental Information, Insurance Information, Insurance Cards
Accounts/Website Access Codes
Cash (small bills)
Titles to cars, boats, real estate deeds
Several additional pages involving 72-hour kits/bug out bags are included in the FREE download shown below.
Be sure and secure all of these documents and information in a secure/safe location ready to grab and go out the door.
This is just one more way to be prepared for the unexpected. Let’s do it together….you will be glad you did!
