Disasters know no seasons: SBP’s Equip app will help you prepare ahead of natural disasters and recover more quickly after.

Extreme weather events are increasing across the globe, putting more and more homes and families at risk. At least 80% of Americans live in counties that have been declared federal disaster areas. Understanding your risk and protecting your home and finances is more important than ever before.

SBP collaborated with AT&T to develop Equip, a preparedness and recovery mobile app designed to help users reduce risk and build resilience before disaster and avoid common recovery obstacles.

  • Pre-Disaster: Tools, resources and customizable checklists help users reduce their disaster risk and build resilience.
  • Post-Disaster: Easy-to-access tools and information help users access eligible funding and avoid common recovery obstacles such as contractor fraud.
