September is National Preparedness Month, which raises awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time.
Get your personal, household or small business financial records in order before a public health or natural disaster strikes using “Plan. Prepare. Prevail.” resources. Share these helpful documents with your employees and customers!
Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City has published an extensive website containing disaster-preparedness tools, such as:
- Quick checklist for personal/household financial documents to identify and organize key financial records and a personal/household financial inventory form
- Quick checklist for small business financial documents to identify and organize key financial records and a small business financial inventory form
- Other valuable resources and materials you can share with family members, employees and customers
"At every disaster, I always hear, 'I never thought it could happen here or to me,'" a FEMA liaison said.

Develop a disaster plan with ACT
In addition, the Big “I" Agents Council for Technology (ACT) is here to assist you before, during and after a disaster occurs.
ACT's Disaster Guide includes steps for developing a disaster plan, resources and tips to apply during the event, and guidance on what to do once danger has passed.
As we mark National Preparedness Month this September, raise awareness with your staff and with your clients about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies.
