WASHINGTON – Winter snows are sometimes followed by floods.  Severe storms—sometimes in the form of deadly tornadoes or massive rainfall—can wreak havoc across the U.S. during spring.  


There are many low-cost, efficient steps you can take now to make sure your company, clients and employees are safe in the months to come.  Join the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery on Tuesday, March 12 at 2 p.m. EDT for a free webinar on best practices for mitigating spring weather risks.  These preparedness tips are based on real-life recovery experiences from business owners.


“Unexpected, bad spring weather can be devastating for a small business that is caught unprepared to deal with this crisis,” said SBA South Florida District Director Francisco “Pancho” Marrero. “This SBA webinar is a great, no-cost, resource for small businesses owners to better ready themselves for unexpected spring weather and the coming tropical storm season.”


The SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies through its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit to access previous webinars and for additional preparedness tips.
