Thanks to our friends at Disaster Legal Services of California for the below resources on preparing for a disaster.

Though some of the resources are California specific, most are national resources and they all provide important tools applicable in any state. Please check back for Oregon-specific resources!

How to:

Take pictures of your important documents. Keep all of your important documents in one, easily accessible spot. Also remember that documents are replaceable. Lives are not.

  • Passport
  • Credit cards
  • Insurance policies (all pages)
  • Leases
  • Deeds to your home
  • Mortgage documents (at least the first page)
  • Car loan documents
  • Birth certificates
  • Immigration documents (green cards, work permits, visa applications, etc.)
