Have you ever heard the saying "Hope for the best but prepare for the worst"?
Many people do heed that warning and try to keep their families and belongings well protected, but despite their best efforts they may still fall short.
Have you ever stopped to consider the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster or a house fire?
Grim to think about I know but it's also important. If you've never lived through these types of experiences it's difficult to fully understand the chaos in those first hours and days after disaster strikes.
It's with this in mind that I wrote this article. I want to remind people that there is more they can do to prepare themselves and their family.
Having an emergency kit, food, water and other supplies is important, and a good first step.
Having adequate insurance coverage is also extremely important and something you want to evaluate before an emergency, not after.
But what happens when you have to file your insurance claim? Where are those household inventory pictures you took? Where are your receipts and insurance policy information?
In most cases all that information got burned in the fire or blown into the next county during the tornado.
I have honestly heard a story about a family who had their insurance policy paperwork show up in another county after a tornado. The family that found it eventually returned it, but it took several weeks.
Where would you be then?
