Chesterfield County Class Helps Residents Prepare Financially for Emergencies

Sept. 10, 2020

Chesterfield Emergency Management 

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Emergencies like hurricanes, tornadoes or Chesterfield’s historic flooding this August pose a threat not only to the physical health of county residents, but also their financial well-being. To help inform residents, Chesterfield Emergency Management will be presenting its Financial Preparedness for Emergencies class virtually on Thursdays beginning Sept. 24 and ending Nov.19.

The class curriculum will cover several financial preparedness items, including the FEMA Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK), how to receive FEMA assistance, safely storing important documents and flood insurance.

Classes will be held virtually online, and all course curriculum will be taught during each session. Those interested in preparing financially for a disaster only need to sign up for one session.

Participants will receive a link to a downloadable version of the EFFAK workbook. Those who are interested in receiving a physical copy of the workbook may pick one up from the Meadowdale, Central or North Courthouse Road libraries.
