What to do about money during a disaster
It is the responsibility of every American to be prepared for a possible attack or a natural disaster. The recent Tsunami and 9-11 have made us acutely aware of the possibilities. The biggest concern of such disasters is the loss of life. After securing immediate needs for the basics, like shelter and food for survivors, there is the economic recovery of the area. You and your family should have emergency kits along with plans for a place to meet in the event of an emergency. You also need to think of what financial loss you may incur from a disaster. One possibility is a loss of a job or employer. What would you do if it happened to you? Here are some steps to take before you are faced with a financial disaster.
Remember any money not in an interest yielding account will not grow.
We never know when disaster may strike. Be prepared with the essentials to make the discomfort a bit more tolerable. Think of ways in which you can ready yourself and protect your family from any unforeseen disaster or monetary loss. FEMA has a web site on "How to prepare" also at www.fema.gov/p+e/prep.htm
