WASHINGTON – You’ve gone online to get the checklists, seen the articles, joined the webinars, and you have a lot of good information when it comes to building a disaster preparedness plan for your business.  But what should you tackle first?  Is it the financial protection that comes with good insurance coverage?  Should your priority be protecting your employees?  And how do you find the time to work on a disaster recovery plan?

It turns out that you can build your resilience starting today, with minimal commitment of time and resources.  Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration Tuesday, Aug. 14 for an online discussion on how to start building your business continuity plan.  The steps you take towards protecting your business can make the difference between succumbing to or surviving a crisis.

SBA partners with Agility to offer business continuity strategies at its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to access past webinars and get 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.
