High Country Bank – October

High Country Bank – October

Sep 24, 2017

September was National Preparedness Month, and being that we live in an area that typically feels like paradise, we neglected to share with our customers some important information. Our communities are full of natural beauty, but unfortunately things can go drastically wrong, very quickly, especially if involving a natural disaster. We are not immune to floods, nor avalanches, nor wildfires. The following consumer tips have been put together by the American Banking Association: Assemble an emergency kit. The emergency kit should include first aid supplies, a flashlight, extra batteries, at least three days of non-perishable foods and water, towels and a supply of any necessary medications. Stay informed of the storm's path and progress by monitoring Wireless Emergency Alerts via text message and having a battery-powered radio or TV available. Develop a family communications plan. Know how you will contact one another; how you will get back together, if separated; and what you will do in different situations. Having a plan can eliminate some of the stress and confusion.
