A recognized authority on financial literacy, Tony Steuer, author of GET READY! A Step-by-Step Planner for Maintaining Your Financial First-Aid Kit, is on a mission to help every household create a plan of action in the event of an emergency in 2019.

To that end, he’s developed a tool called a Critical Emergency Action List which itemizes what to do in a crisis situation, so you don’t have to waste a moment thinking. Mapped out in his book, the List prompts each household to organize and intentionally note:

  • Details on a meeting location for the family in the event of an emergency (primary and secondary)
  • Locations of water and gas shutoff valves, as well as the fuse box
  • Lock combinations and burglar alarm codes
  • Locations of photo albums, flash drives, first aid kits and keys (residence, cars, garage, storage, other)

Another critical list item is the GET READY! planner, a binder with all of your financial information in one place. Putting the planner together is GET READY!’s underlying theme.

“Planning for an emergency is a critical step to financial success”, explains Tony. “We make plans and then life happens. It’s important for us to take the time while we have the time to make a plan.”
