a one-stop location for immediate information. The online resource includes details

natural disaster can take. In addition, it shares tips for recovery after the disaster,

In a separate initiative designed to provide support and respond
to the current economic environment, HRI also released its web resource Dealing

prevention and managing credit and debt. In addition, it specifically addresses
precautions to take in an economic downturn and shares expert advice on ways to
manage stress in a difficult financial environment. Information is delivered in
a variety of formats, including articles, webinars, and podcasts, so that individuals
can access information in the medium that works best for them.
"Difficult times - from economic uncertainty to disasters in
the home - create significant personal stress, and people most often don't even
know where to go for help. This is where we can be of assistance," said Edward Trieber,
J.D., Ph.D., Managing Director of Harris, Rothenberg International. "Having the
right resources all in one location makes taking that first step to find the answer
all the easier. That's why Severe Weather Resources and Dealing with Financial
Uncertainty are both important. They provide the stepping stones to determining
the right solutions."
