EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS MONTH: According to the Federal Reserve, 40 percent of Americans do not have $400 in savings. Being prepared for a disaster means having financial reserves set in place as well as emergency preparedness kits and plans. Set aside a small amount from each paycheck to go into your savings account. Also, keep cash on-hand in case of emergencies as ATM’s and credit card readers might be unavailable.
