Mitchell Freedman's first piece of advice for CPAs and their clients when it comes to disaster preparedness is keeping some key information readily available and portable if you are forced to leave. Freedman also advises videotaping or taking photos of your home and its contents. Monitoring insurance is critical. A checklist is provided for CPAs to use when navigating disasters. The checklist includes what to keep off-site, upon evacuation, additional notes, emergency and earthquake kits, insurance claims, disaster planning, and after a disaster.
