The Power of Being Prepared
At First Commerce, we care about your personal and financial well-being. As we have learned from recent hurricanes and other natural disasters, storm preparation can help to minimize the negative impact of a hurricane or natural disaster on you and your family. One way to prepare is by assembling a packet of your important family documents. Keep these types of records safe, waterproof, and portable so you have them available after the storm.
In addition to securing your important documents, it is never too early to build an emergency supply of food, water, flashlights, batteries and other necessities. Gathering supplies incrementally can make your emergency supply list more manageable and effective. And don’t forget about your pets. The pet population in the U.S. equals about 59% of the human population. Take the time to create an emergency kit specifically for animals too.
In the event a storm is predicted to affect your area, use these helpful tips to ensure you have access to your accounts and your funds before and after the storm:
While we can’t control what storms will come our way during hurricane season, we can get ahead of the storm and do our best to prepare now. That’s the Power of You!
