SBA Offers Disaster Preparedness Webinars in September

The Small Business Association reports that nearly 70 percent of all U.S. businesses will lose power at one point in the next 12 months. Do you have a plan in place to keep your operations running? Is your organization prepared to communicate quickly and effectively with each other when a crisis hits? How will you rebuild your business if your employees are unable to report to work after a major disaster?

Having a business continuity plan is essential to establishing a successful and resilient business. The cost of creating a disaster preparedness plan is small compared to the financial losses that may occur if there’s no plan in place. 

You can get help with your own preparedness planning through a series of free webinars hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery. The series is presented in collaboration with FEMA’s Ready Campaign during National Preparedness Month.  The 2015 theme is “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.”

The 30-minute webinars will be presented at 2 p.m. EDT each Wednesday in September.

Topics are:

  • September 16: Recover from the Most Likely Disaster: Power Outage
  • September 23: Protect Your Most Valuable Asset: Prepare Your Employees
  • September 30: If You Do Nothing Else this Year… Simple tips to build your organization’s resilience.
