If you’re looking for something positive to do after the Boston Marathon tragedy yesterday, you can make sure you and your family are ready for emergencies.
Baby boomers, age 49 to 67, can look over this list and see what actions are needed. Do you have:
- An emergency plan?
- Emergency equipment including a battery-operated radio and emergency supplies for your car?
- Medical insurance?
- Ways to retrieve financial information?
- A will?
- A living will?
Consumers often put off being ready for emergencies, although we never know when they’ll occur.
It’s best to be prepared.
