Business Disaster Preparation

 

 

 
 

 

In the aftermath of the recent flooding in nearby Colorado, many business owners have questioned whether they are prepared for a disaster. Floods, tornadoes, wind storms, and man-made disasters can hit Kansas without notice, but most businesses are ill-prepared to deal with the disaster or the business recovery.

According to the Institute for Business and Home Safety, an estimated 25 percent of businesses do not reopen following a major disaster.

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, www.preparemybusiness.org 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 www.sba.gov/disaster.
