• Know Your Stuff (www.knowyourstuff.org) is a free software program sponsored by insurance companies that helps you inventory and categorize all your possessions.
According to insurance agents, most people filing a claim don’t remember all the things they’ve accumulated. Documenting your possessions ensures that you receive every cent you’re due.
How it works: Take photos and scan receipts, then add them to your inventory. You can either save the data in an off-site storage space offered by Know Your Stuff (for a fee) or on your own flash drive.
If you use a flash drive, store it in an easy-to-reach drawer, so you can grab it in a hurry, should you need to flee for your safety.

• The Disaster Handbook (http://disaster.ifas.ufl.edu/) by the University of Florida, contains a long list of resources to use in the event of a weather-related or fire-related incident.
