Creating a Red File For Your Important DocumentsNo one likes to think about a major disaster that displaces you from your home. Yet it is important to prepare for the worse - especially because things like bills won't necessarily stop because you're in a crisis. That's why we really like this "red file" idea - one place where all your important documents are held. You should keep this in a fireproof safe as if there is a fire you need to get your family out and also because you want access to information but others should not have it.
Also, remember while many of these items can be found via the internet sometimes computers and power could be down for several days. Having these back ups can help make recovering easier.
