Disaster Preparedness - Helping your customers prepare, recover, and rebuild

In the span of less than 2 weeks, the US will deal with two significant hurricanes causing substantial destruction and even more anxiety about recovering. Much of 10-D’s staff have clients, friends and family who are directly impacted by these events and our hearts are with you. Since 10-D is located smack in the middle of the country (hello from Kansas City!), we are wholly unqualified to provide guidance related to weathering a hurricane. What we ARE qualified to do is forward resources when we see them come across our desks. On Tuesday, Sept 27, 2022, the CFPB issued a public service announcement reminding us of published guidance and available resources to help safeguard your finances in the event of disasters or emergencies which includes information related to:

  • Preparing for disasters and emergencies
  • Tackling housing issues
  • Managing your bills
  • Dealing with property damage
  • Protecting your finances
  • Helping others rebuild

  • These resources can be found at:

    FEMA also provides many resources including:

  • An Emergency Financial First Aid Kit,
  • Guidance on how to prepare for different types of emergencies and disasters,

  • If you have already been affected, here are a couple of places to begin:

    If you or anyone you know could benefit from this information, you are welcome to forward this WST or publish it in part or whole to your institution’s website.
