New Year Resolution: Planning for the Disaster

New Year Resolutions: “The next time I WILL be prepared”

You said it after Harvey and again after Imelda and again after each disaster threat in 2020. 

Every time a disaster strikes, 40% of small businesses do not reopen and after three years, 75% of businesses, without a continuity plan, fail.  Texas leads the nation in the number of physical disasters so it is not “if” but “when” the next disaster will strike.

Don’t become another statistic. Join us for this two-part webinar focused on SCORE’s Emergency Preparedness Program specifically designed to help small business owners prepare for disasters and recovery in the aftermath.  Make 2021 the year you face our next disaster prepared.

Part I: Planning for the Disaster

Using our checklist approach, we will walk you through conducting a risk assessment and preparing your business to weather disasters.  In the webinar you will learn:

  • Risk assessment
  • Emergency supplies and documentation
  • Crisis communication planning
