What Documents Will You Need During an Emergency?

When disruptions occur, the last thing you should be worrying about is trying to access your critical documents. Having access to your personal information plays a key role in reducing hardship by helping you gain access to supports and services sooner, speeding up your recovery.

Build resilience by taking these three steps:

  1. Gather critical information, like birth certificates, credit cards and insurance numbers
  2. Make copies and protect them in a waterproof and/or fireproof container
  3. Store them in a secure place, like a password protected cloud storage and a safe

These steps can help you cope with the stress and navigate the situation more safely. For more preparedness tips visit alberta.ca/BePrepared.
