policies do not cover flooding. Ask about the
National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
• Tell everyone in your family where they need to
go if you need to evacuate your home in the

Another Type of Disaster,
Disaster Scams
Disaster Scams
• Home and auto repair
• Charities
• Price gouging
Home Repair
• Take the time to shop around
• Be wary of transient “contractors”
• Obtain a written contract
• Check with appropriate agency
 Better Business Bureau
 Consumer affairs, 973-504-6200
 Board of Examiners
• Electricians, 973-504-6410
• Plumbers, 973-504-6420
• If anyone claims to have already performed work on your
property and is demanding payment, contact your local
authorities immediately.
Home Repair
• Red flags:
• Expects cash, large payment in advance
• Avoids written contract
• No permanent address
• Is not licensed
• No official ID -- avoid entry to home!
Auto Repair
• Check with Consumer Affairs on
complaint history
• Rely on personal references
• Get written estimate
• Consider a 2nd opinion if price seems
high or unsure about proposed work
Charities
“More than 1,100 Internet addresses related to Hurricane
Sandy have been registered since last Friday.”
Quote from US Justice Dept Briefing Nov 2, 2012
Charities
• There are over 1 million charities in the U.S. and 10,000 in NJ
• So, be wary if;
• Name is very similar to well known charity
• Caller applies pressure, won’t answer questions
• Unsolicited requests for credit card info, even if claiming to
be from known charity, i.e., phishing
• If the charity claims you have made a donation pledge but
you have no record or recollection
Charities
• Keep in mind:
• Trinkets and other items accompanying donation requests
are gifts to you
• Never send cash. Write a check directly to charity
• Keep a record of your donation, noting the date and amount
of the donation
• If unsure about a charity, check if registered with or exempt
from Consumer Affairs’ Charities Registration Section, 973-
504-6215
• Check charity evaluation sites, (www.charitynavigator.org)
Price Gauging
Price Gauging
• All you need to know!
• N.J.’s Price Gouging Law:
• Up to 30 days after a State of Emergency excessive
price increases on necessary goods or services are
illegal.
• “Excessive” is 10 percent higher than the price before
the State of Emergency.
• Report to NJ Division of Consumer Affairs
Disaster Preparedness

  2. Learn what disasters or emergencies may occur where you live, work and play. These events can vary from those affecting only you and your family, like a home fire or medical emergency, to those affecting your entire community, like an earthquake or flood.Identify how local authorities will notify you during a disaster and how you will get importantinformation, whether through local radio, TV or NOAA weather radio stations or channels.Learn what you can do to prepare for disasters by contacting your local Red Cross chapter to ask about first aid, CPR and disaster training. Learning simple first aid techniques can give you the skills and confidence to help when someone in your home, your neighborhood or workplace is injured.When a major disaster occurs, your community can change in an instant. Loved ones can be hurt, and emergency response can be delayed.
