WHAT DID 2015 DISASTERS TEACH US ABOUT PREPAREDNESS?

The year 2015 began with a powerful nor’easter that dumped several feet of snow in Massachusetts, forcing major road closings and flight cancellations in the Northeast. In October, heavy rains in the Charleston, South Carolina area resulted in flooding that caused widespread losses. The year ended with deadly tornadoes and floods sweeping through the Midwest and the South.
The factors that cause financial losses to small businesses exist every day. A solid business continuity plan will protect your organization and your assets while ensuring a quick recovery when a disaster occurs.
Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration on Tuesday, Jan. 12, for a free webinar that will take a look at how small businesses handled disaster-related losses in 2015, lessons learned, and the resulting best practices.

Topics will include:
• A retrospective of major disaster events in 2015 causing business interruptions
• Steps and tools your organization needs in order to be prepared
• Actionable ideas that can be applied today to increase your organization's preparedness
Since 2010, the SBA has partnered with Agility Recovery to offer business continuity strategies at the “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit the site to check out past webinars and to download helpful disaster preparedness checklists.
