Get supply chain continuity tips at a free webinar hosted by SBA & Agility

WASHINGTON – It could come in the form of a widespread electrical blackout.  Or it may occur on the heels of a massive storm.  Local infrastructures are broken in the aftermath of a disaster.  When that happens, transportation shutdowns and telecommunications failures can cut off your access to the critical suppliers that keep your business open.

Developing a resilient and diverse supply chain is the best way to protect your company from costly shutdowns, while also helping you maintain your competitive edge.

Join the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recover on Tuesday, April 8 at 2 p.m. EDT for a discussion on best practices for getting your organization prepared for any kind of disaster, while also engaging partners and suppliers in the process. 

The SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies through its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit http://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.
