Being a volunteer Firefighter I get to see computers amongst other possessions in the worst possible condition. Of course home computers and other IT Equipment is particularly heartbreaking for me.
In many fire departments salvage begins immediately, trying to cover and recover what possessions we can be taken care of.
It’s good to have insurance though. Do you have home insurance? is your computer equipment covered?
The Ann Arbor Home Insurance company has a small, simple, site with some helpful information regarding insurance, what you need to do, what you need to catalog, how to catalog it and how much you need.
Also, if you make computer backups – don’t keep them on your computer desk or anywhere near your computer. It totally nulls the whole point of making a backup!
