"If you are not afraid of the flu, then you don't need to be afraid of future pandemics" This interview was clearly done before the Covid pandemic.

Such great information. The attachments are very helpful also. I wonder how much cash to have on hand though - I guess every little bit counts, right?

Great question, I usually take several hundred dollars on each disaster deployment in small bills. Most recently during Hurricanes Irma and Maria, all of the ATM's were out and it was difficult we ended up on a extended deployment for both Hurricanes in Puerto Rico and USVI. It was, even hotel transactions were cache. So depending on what you are doing and the mobility of where you plan on a good amount of cache on hand.
