With the annual tax return season in full swing take a moment to review the FEMA Financial Preparedness Tips such as:
- Consider saving money in an emergency savings account that could be used in any crisis. Keep a small amount of cash at home in a safe place. It is important to have small bills on hand because ATM’s and credit cards may not work during a disaster when you need to purchase necessary supplies, fuel or food.
- Tax statements to provide contact information for financial and legal providers & apply for FEMA disaster assistance
Other helpful tips for Financial Preparedness are available through FEMA at Ready.gov.
