A message from Wright County Emergency Management
With the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to prepare your finances for an emergency. Develop a spending plan to keep household costs down and build up your “rainy day” fund for when you need it.
For those under financial stress during these hard times, be sure to develop a budget for you and your family to stay on top of expenses. Be ready for the unexpected, prepare for disasters now for peace of mind later.
As an added measure against disaster, make sure to talk to your insurance provider about flood insurance and water/sewage backup coverage. Even if you’re not in a flood prone location, any flooding in the area can stress the waste water system and cause it to back up into your home. https://www.usa.gov/flec
