Resolve to be Prepared in 2022

In 2022, resolve to be prepared for an emergency. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers these tips:

  • Make an emergency plan: choose a safe place to meet, learn evacuation routes and establish an out-of-town contact.
  • Take a current photo of you and your pet together in case you get separated during a disaster.
  • Get to know your neighbor and invite them to be a part of your emergency plan.
  • Snap photos of important documents and save them in a secure place or online.
  • Set up group text lists so you can communicate with friends and family during emergencies.
  • Take a class in CPR and first aid.
  • Keep and update emergency supplies; remember to include cash.
  • Have back-up power sources available to charge devices in case of a power outage.
  • Snap pictures of your property for insurance purposes.
  • Check your insurance for coverage on disasters like floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.
  • Sign up for alerts and warnings. Download the FEMA app to get real-time alerts, safety tips and locate open shelters.
  • Save for a rainy day! Start and grow your emergency fund.
  • Financially prepare for the New Year. Find out how with the Emergency Financial First Aid Kit.
  • Spend within your means. Use a personal budgeting worksheet to help plan for holiday expenses and beyond.
  • Build up your savings. Put a small amount in your account the first of every month beginning January 1.
