Business Disaster Preparation

Protect Your Business


In the aftermath of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan, many business owners have questioned whether they are prepared for a disaster.  Floods, tornadoes, wind storms, man-made disasters and even earthquakes can occur in Kentucky, but most businesses are ill-prepared to deal with the disaster or the business recovery.  

The U.S. Small Business Administration has partnered with Agility Recovery Solutions to offer business continuity strategies for entrepreneurs via a “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit the website, to access previous webinars and get more tips for disaster planning and assistance. 

Since 1953, the SBA has provided more than $48  billion in disaster recovery assistance to 1.9 million homeowners, renters and businesses of all sizes in the form of low-interest loans.  For more information about the disaster loan program, visit
