Tips
    Create a financial “grab and go” kit

    In case you need to evacuate or go to a shelter, you want to be able to grab your essential documents in a hurry. This will make it easier to file an insurance claim afterwards. Your kit should include: 1. auto and homeowners insurance policies 2. lists of your home inventory and safe deposit box contents (with key) 3. receipts for major purchases 4. list of account numbers, passwords, important web pages and phone numbers 5. Flash drive containing important computer files
