WASHINGTON – Floods are a threat for areas hit by heavy late-winter snowfalls.  Severe storms—sometimes in the form of deadly tornadoes or massive rainfall—often 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,” said SBA Philadelphia District Director David Dickson. “Learning how to prepare now can be the deciding factor in successful disaster preparedness and readiness should there be a disaster in your area.”

Join the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery on Tuesday, March 11 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.

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