Hi MoMo. Have you prepared some cash in your emergency kit?

Happy Right

No, but I have my credit card! And there are ATM in my neighbourhood if I need cash.

Power outage can happen for a variety of reasons and it could extend for days or even weeks. Power outage may impact the whole community which includes stores and banks.

Worried Right

Oh, no! Does it mean payment system and ATM could be out of order when I need to pay for something during a disaster?

That’s why you need to have some cash included in the emergency kit.

! Security alert !

There’s no need to keep excess amount of cash at home. Make sure to keep adequate amount needed for emergency use.
