1. Make a paper copy of your import contacts. Phone, address and emails for your spouse, SO, partner, files.

Survey your immediate area (Home, work, in between) for routes, safe areas, resources.

Keep a car charger for your cell phone, a rain jacket, a comfy pair of shoes, and work gloves in your car.

Copy or scan any important documents, and gather them in one place costs little to nothing.

Document a disaster plan and test it.

I typically catch up on all documentation this time of year anyway when it gets too close to go outdoors as much.

Dress for the worst possible weather in your area.

Take your car keys with you when you leave your desk, home or vehicle.

to add on what barbakane commented about the work gloves in your vehicle...have them with your fire extinguisher and window punch and pry bar...that way you may offer assistance while protecting yourself...

This isn't prep. It's common sense. Or at least it should be anyway.

Walk around every room of your house with your digital camera, taking pictures from every angle of each room, showing all contents. Including opening closets and photographing contents. Including opening desk/bureau/etc drawers and photographing contents. You don't need world class beautiful photos. These are simply for your use in filing possible future insurance claims. To make you "remember what you used to have there". If you have high dollar items, take specific pictures of each one, showing serial numbers and other identifying characteristics, maybe pictures of the item beside it's original purchase receipt (if available, and you can make the receipt legible in the photo), etc. Burn those pictures to multiple CD's and store each CD in a different off-premisis site (maybe mail one to a relative, put one in a safe deposit box, etc.)
