How do you keep your collection safe? Is your tall heavy furniture attached to the top of the wall so it won’t tip? Do you have the insurance you need? Scheduled items? Replacement cost? Breakage insurance?
Be prepared; know what to do first, what to do quickly, what to do a day later when you start salvaging belongings and collecting insurance. No Home should be without this information.
No one is prepared for a major disaster like the tornados happening in the Midwest, or the California forest fires or Hurricanes such as Ike, Gustav or Andrew. Calamity can happen anywhere. Kovels' Dealing with Disaster tells what to do before you have a problem, who to contact immediately after the disaster, how to handle the first day of a loss—the first week after a loss—and what you need to settle insurance claims quickly and what you can and can't do with cleanup to be safe.
“We wrote this because so many of you have asked about these problems and many times it’s too late, the mistakes have been made.” —Terry Kovel
