Disaster: a sudden event, such as an accident or a natural catastrophe, that causes great damage or loss of life – an event or fact that has unfortunate consequences

Disaster comes in many forms both natural, and man made. Hurricanes, Tornados, and Wildfires may cause evacuations, flooding and catastrophic damage to homes and businesses. While our goal is to help people save their memories BEFORE an unexpected disaster, we recognize that there are still millions of people who do not have a safety plan in place for their treasured photos and videos.
Disasters don’t have to be large scale events to wreak havoc on your photos and videos. A flooded basement from a broken sump pump, an electrical fire that fills a home with soot, computer or device theft or an unexpected computer crash can threaten family photos in an instant.
