Get Your Business Ready For Any Kind of Disaster

WASHINGTON – Each year small businesses nationwide are forced to close their doors in the aftermath of severe storms, flooding, tornadoes, wildfires and hurricanes.  Business interruptions, even if it lasts just a few hours, are costly in terms of lost productivity and profits.

 

You can get help with your own business preparedness planning through a series of free webinars in September hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery.   The September series is presented in collaboration with FEMA’s Ready Campaign, as part of National Preparedness Month.  

 

The SBA wants to help business owners take charge of the well-being of their own companies, the safety of their employees, and the sustenance of their local economies by being prepared to rebound quickly from any kind of disaster.

 

Below is a list of the topics.  The hour-long webinars will be presented at 2 p.m. EDT each Wednesday in September.
