Homeowner Disaster Preparedness Binder by The Red Guide to Recovery

As part of any disaster preparedness kit, you will need a 3-ring binder with index tabs to hold important information. Creating a binder as a single source for locating important information when you need it will be invaluable during the recovery process. This binder should include the following:

Preparedness items to gather before a disaster:

Copy of insurance policies
Personal property inventory
List of home features & fixtures
Home floor plan
Important contacts-Emergency contact list Photos
Copies of receipts

Recovery items to collect after a disaster:

Correspondence from insurance adjusters Estimates
Contracts and change orders
Building permits

Contractor correspondence Construction details Business cards

Hint: Consider creating one binder for insurance related matters, and another binder for construction when rebuilding your home.
