During an emergency, an evacuation notice may come quickly, leaving us little time to gather important documents that we’ll need in case of property loss. As we continue to monitor the Caldor Fire and other natural disasters recently devastating the country, we remind our clients and our neighbors that our team is available should you need any assistance.
As always, our top priority is the safety and well-being of those impacted by these events. In the event of an emergency evacuation, here is a list of important documents to bring with you.
- Driver’s licenses
- Deeds to real estate
- Proof of insurance
- Estate documents
- Medical records, including vaccination history
- Social security cards
- Birth certificates
- Marriage certificate
- A list of personal contacts with their addresses and phone numbers
- Your pet’s paperwork for vaccinations and medical history
Ideally, you would scan them so you’d have electronic copies that you could bring with you on a flash drive or access from the Cloud. For our clients, we can include these on your portal for easy access anywhere you can access the Internet.
An online password manager is a great way to capture and save all of your logins in one place that you can access via the Internet. It’s also important to electronically store a video of your home and its contents (i.e. open the doors and drawers).
Our thoughts are with all of our friends and neighbors during this time – please contact us if you have any questions.
