MemorialCare Disaster VAT
In the event of a serious emergency when evacuating your home may be necessary, you should have copies of important documents prepared to quickly take with you when you depart your home. This collection may be indispensable to you if you are unable to return to your home for an extended period of time, or if your home is destroyed (i.e. fire). Due to the confidential and sensitive nature of some of these documents, you should not leave them in your vehicle, but you may desire to keep a set in a bank safe deposit box, or with a trusted friend or extended family member. Without these documents, you may find yourself unable to conduct important transactions in the hours and days following a disaster.
It is recommended that you make copies of the following documents and have them secured in a manner that allows you to quickly take them with you when evacuating your home:
You may also wish to scan and store copies of your documents on portable storage media, such as jump drives or CDs. There are also several websites that allow you to securely store your essential personal documents “in the cloud.” However, you may be unable to produce electronic copies following a disaster, so do not let electronic copies substitute for paper copies.
