DAY 16: Records & Back-Up

Everyone has an important document or two.  But the real question when it comes to emergency preparedness is whether you store them in a way that is safe from hazards.  Are they kept in locations which are either redundant (backup records stored off-site) or in a manner that is not vulnerable to flooding, fires or other dangers. 

DAY 16 ACTIVITY:  Identify your "important records" and tell us how you store them?

PROOF: You will earn one point today for each of the two questions posed above.  A third point will be available if you keep a copy of your records in an alternate location (other than where the primary records are kept.

We keep our important papers in a fire proof safe. I dont know if it is flood proof. The papers we consider important are: house/car insurance info, passports, car registrations, financial records/account numbers, our will, birth certificates, pet vet records and license info. I keep a copy of each in our "go pack".
