June 20 '07: Wakulla Bank in Florida has released financial preparedness information for residents for the 2007 hurricane season. On its website, the bank said it has partnered with the American Bankers Association to provide the information after a Miami Herald story found that more than half of all Floridians are not prepared to handle the aftermath of a large disaster.
"Wakulla Bank encourages customers and the public to review" the tips on how to financially prepare for emergencies, the website read. Suggestions included keeping forms of identification "handy", having direct deposit for paychecks and automatic bill pay - to avoid late charges or service interruption; and to have all of your important financial information in a water-proof container.Wakulla Bank President and CEO Walter C. Dodson said on the website that he wants his customers "to be aware of the steps they need to take to be financially secure in the event of an emergency situation." Additional financial preparedness information can be found on the ABA's Emergency Preparedness site.
