Emergency Preparedness

Although a business cannot plan when and where a disaster will hit, small businesses can leverage national preparedness best practices to better prepare, respond and recover from a crisis.
Prepare— Ensure your financial stability

  • Keep your insurance policy up to date
  • Keep your business credit profile up to date
  • Keep important records off-site in a safe deposit box or back up (IT) to an external drive and take it home with you

Respond— Ensure continuity of business by creating an emergency response plan which includes:

  • Employee contact strategy
  • Supplier contact strategy

Recover— Know where to find help to return your business to normal operations
