If you happen to have some downtime (like, oh, if you’re waiting for PearBudget to move to its new server), you might take a minute to check out a new (free) project we’ve started up, Emergency Binder!
As you’ve probably guessed, it’s a resource where you can gather important documents, records, and instructions for how to handle an emergency. For example, if a pipe bursts in your home, does everyone know how to shut off the water supply line? If you need to leave your home, do you have a coordinated meetup spot where you can all rendezvous? Do you have the name and contact info for your college-aged child’s Resident Advisor / Landlord / Dean of Students? All of those are things that Emergency Binder! deals with.
Emergency Binder! is young (about a week old), but it’s already got some good stuff. And, as I mentioned, it’s completely free. Check it out!
