Being prepared is more than just having beans bullets and bandages stacked high and dry. Its also about having you home and personal finance in order.
The National Endowment for Financial Education®, the American Red Cross, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency have prepared this brochure to help you cushion yourself against the financial blow of a disaster and help you regain much of your pre-disaster financial health as quickly as possible.
Listed here are some simple, common-sense steps you can take now. Before you take any actions, however, you should be sure you have
involved your family or friends whenever possible in decision making and planning. You also may want the assistance of an advisor, such as
a Certified Financial Planner® licensee, insurance agent, or similar financial professional.
The important thing is to begin planning now, before the unexpected becomes a harsh reality.
