Disaster Recovery Resources

A disaster can strike at any moment. It could be anything from a hurricane to a flood to a fire. Credit unions need to have a plan in place if a disaster strikes. Financial institutions play a crucial role after disasters take place. The League of Southeastern Credit Unions has many resources available to help members prepare for potential disasters and offers disaster recovery workshops several times throughout the year in various locations.

Credit Union Status Report and Disaster Resources

Use the Status Update by CU form to update the League on the status of your credit union following a disaster. The document is a PDF that can be completed electronically. This will help the LSCU assist credit unions quicker following a disaster.

NCUA Disaster Preparedness Resources

The NCUA has a number of resources to help credit unions plan out their disaster plan. The NCUA suggests that federally chartered credit unions review their plan on a regular basis and also have a “dry run” to ensure the credit union is prepared in case a disaster hits.

The state of Alabama and the state of Florida also have very good resource pages that credit unions should bookmark and refer to during times of natural disasters.
