For National Preparedness Month, L.A. Controller Ron Galperin released a new online resource to help Angelenos prepare for today's emergencies, like the COVID-19 pandemic and wildfires, and any others that may come. "How to Build a Financial First Aid Kit" is an interactive tool that provides a list of documents and items people should gather, store safely, and be able to access if a crisis comes their way.
A Financial First Aid Kit is similar to an emergency medical first aid kit, but instead of bandages, water, medicine and tools, a Financial First Aid Kit should include any important financial, legal, medical and other personal documents and information people may need to have on hand in case of an emergency. Galperin provides a list of documents and items needed in a Financial First Aid Kit, along with helpful tips on how to store these documents both physically and digitally.
