Last month, I stressed the importance of putting together an Emergency Supply Kit. To make the process easier, I provided a link to FEMA's Emergency Supplies Checklist. One of the things on that checklist is “important family documents” however the checklist did not elaborate on what to include, most likely to keep the list simple and not overwhelming.
This month, I’d like to elaborate on that for you… not only on what documents it may contain but also format options. FYI, most of these documents will be copies; original deeds, birth certificates, insurance policies, etc. should be stored in a safety deposit box or fire safe as a back up.
Contents you may want to include:
Should there be an emergency, you won’t have time to dig through your files/belongings to pull them. So invest the time of pulling those documents out and duplicating them.
If you haven’t yet pulled your “important family documents” don’t be overwhelmed. Simply take the first step and you’ll be on your way.
