Take photos of your stuff.
These days taking pictures has become a way of life for most people. It’s so easy to snap selfies, friends, events. We do it all the time. What many of us don't do, is take pictures of our stuff.
In the unfortunate event that you need to evacuate your home and it's not there when you return, having pictures of the interior of your home, your valuables, your furniture, etc. will go a long way in helping you make an insurance claim. Don't forget your exterior - cars, air conditioner compressors, etc.
It's one simple step to make a tough situation a little easier.
