Small Business Emergency Preparedness

Small Business Emergency Preparedness

WOULD YOUR BUSINESS SURVIVE IF…

  • The road to your business closes as result of construction or bad weather?
  • A key supplier/customer goes out of business?
  • A key employee gets sick for an extended period of time?

WHY PREPARE

From workplace disruptions to natural and man-made disasters, as a small business owner, you should be ready for anything. Unexpected events can quickly interrupt your business putting you and your employees at risk. If you are not prepared, your business could shut down forever.

WHERE TO START

Developing a business continuity plan will protect your business by minimizing the impact of unplanned disruption and improve the likelihood that your business will survive and recover. Through grants provided by the U.S. Small Business Administration, businesses impacted by local disasters can take advantage of prepaid business assistance in planning for recovery. All small businesses can benefit from the services of their local SBDC.
