More severe weather is being forecast for parts of the central United States…which is already reeling from recent powerful tornadoes and storms. The scenes of the massive tornado damage in an Oklahoma City suburb are horrifying, and a reminder of the deadly power of tornadoes. Preparation is paramount.

To help credit unions take the appropriate steps to mitigate risks and protect their assets, CUNA Strategic Services and Agility Recovery have prepared several checklists: 

  • Download Agility's Tornado Preparedness Checklist for detailed steps your credit union, employees and community should take to prepare for the storm.
  • Review Agility's Flood Checklist to prepare for the heavy rainfall and widespread flooding often generated by these storm systems.
  • Prepare your organization for what to do before and during a power outage by downloading Agility’s Power & Generator Checklist.
  • Download Agility’s Crisis Communications Planning Checklist to help your credit union develop a plan, as well as provide preparedness tools to ensure continuous communications before, during and after a disaster.
  • Prepare a Disaster Recovery Kit to ensure you have the necessary items to initiate recovery procedures in the wake of a storm.
  • Red Cross Tornado App – Get your family and home ready for a tornado with the official Tornado App from the American Red Cross.
  • By taking Agility’s Preparedness Evaluation the credit union will understand how much risk they face.
