Natural disaster can have a huge impact on individuals, communities and businesses. Recent events such as Hurricane Sandy, wildfires, widespread flooding and the tornadoes in Oklahoma emphasize the need for everyone to be prepared. This web seminar from the SBA will help you and your clients prepare for the unknown.
From the SBA Website:
WASHINGTON – You’ve gone online to get the checklists, read the articles, joined the webinars, and gathered some really good disaster preparedness tools for your business. But what should you tackle first? Is it the financial protection that comes with good insurance coverage? Should your priority be protecting your employees? And how do you find the time to work on a disaster recovery plan?
Get help with those first steps towards building your plan at a free webinar Tuesday, August 13 from 2:00 - 3:00 hosted by Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration. The action you take towards protecting your business can make the difference between surviving a crisis or losing your hard-earned assets.
SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies at its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to access past webinars and get additional preparedness tips.
The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. To learn more, visit www.sba.gov/disaster.
