ICBA Offers Tips For Financial Preparedness in a Natural Disaster

 

Sept 2 - September is National Preparedness Month, and with the onset of Atlantic hurricane season, the Independent Community Bankers of America has some tips to help individuals put their financial documents in order to prepare for a hurricane or other natural disaster.

“While the first priority is the physical safety and well-being of you and your family, knowing that your banking and financial papers are safe gives you one less thing to worry about during times of duress,” said Jim MacPhee, ICBA chairman and CEO of Kalamazoo County State Bank in Kalamazoo, Mich. “Storms like Hurricane Earl are reminders that everyone needs to prepare ahead of time for a possible natural disaster. Having a financial preparedness plan will protect you and your family from the long-term effects hurricane or flood damage may cause to your financial documents.”

ICBA offers the following tips to help consumers prepare before an emergency occurs.
