Disaster Recovery Planning Tips: National Preparedness Infographic

  1. 1. PHOTOGRAPHS AND ART Scan and backup precious photos and digital downloads. Make sure music, poetry, and art are saved digitally and stored in a safe. INSURANCE Review your coverage and limitations regularly. Remember that flood and earthquake coverage may be an additional expense. PROOF OF OWNERSHIP Have a photo ID with your address and copies of your deed or rental agreement. If you own a business, you will need this same proof of ownership to gain access to the property. STOW AWAY CASH Keep a small amount of cash or traveler’s checks at home in a safe place where you can access them quickly. WORK/SCHOOL Be familiar with telework or tele-school options and policies. Know how to access the tools needed to stay connected in case of delays or closings. PREPARE A RE-ENTRY KIT Maintain supplies to collect wet/damaged/ burned materials from your home, including flashlight, boots, gloves, ID tags, garbage bags, plastic bins, and camera (to take pictures of damaged materials). PET CARE If you’re a pet owner, list hotels, motels, and boarding kennels that accept pets. Keep copies of the pet’s vaccinations and health records (along with any special medications) in a disaster kit. RE-ENTRY PLAN Following a disaster, officials may only let you into your house for a short period of time. So plan ahead for what you most want to recover from your personal collections. ON-GOING PAYMENTS Be prepared to be able to continue to pay bills (e.g., mortgage, rent, credit cards). Make sure you can access your user IDs and passwords for all your accounts. LONG-TERM HOUSING/RELOCATION Identify family or friends that you could stay with for longer than a few days. Identify a local hotel or other housing option ahead of time that can bridge the gap between emergency shelter and long-term housing solutions in case your home cannot be re-inhabited. Individual, family, and community recovery from a disaster is often expensive and can take months or even years. It consumes a tremendous amount of personal energy and takes precious time away from work, school, and family care. As such, it can be a chaotic and emotionally taxing process for all who are affected. Fortunately, planning in advance for recovery can help an individual, family, and community better cope with these challenges and get back to normal faster. Below are a few “recovery in advance” tips to do before a disaster strikes.

DOCUMENT PROTECTION Keep hard copies of your most important documents in a fire and water-proof portable safe. Scan and keep electronic files on a USB drive (in a safe) or a cloud program. Documents that should be protected include: personal identification, property and financial documents, medical records, mortgage statements, property tax statements, tax returns, and homeowners insurance.
