Emergency Financial First Aid

If a disaster or other emergency strikes your community, you could have only seconds or minutes to react.

At that time, your focus will be on your family’s safety.

Once the threat of harm and injury has passed, having your homeowners or renters insurance policy, bank account information, medical contacts and other household records will be very important as you begin the recovery process.

In this MYD Minute, we profile the Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK) which can be a very valuable resource for you and your family. It was developed by the nonprofit organization Operation HOPE, in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 2004 to help individuals and families collect and organize critical financial, medical, and household contact information.
