SBA to offer free emergency-preparation seminars
WASHINGTON -- This summer, millions of businesses across the country were forced to close their doors in the aftermath of power outages, approaching wildfires, and flooding caused by tropical storms.
You can get help with your own business preparedness planning through a series of free webinars hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Agility Recovery. The September series is presented in collaboration with FEMA’s Ready Campaign, as part of National Preparedness Month.
Below is a list of the webinars, held each Wednesday in September at 1 p.m.:
•Sept. 5: “10 Steps to Prepare Any Organization for Disaster” with an introduction from James Rivera, associate administrator for SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance.
•Sept. 12: “Protecting Your Organization by Preparing Your Employees”
•Sept. 19: “Utilization of Social Media During a Crisis”
•Sept. 26: “Surviving a Crisis, Large or Small: Real Life Lessons Learned.” Business owners who recovered from disasters discuss their proactive emergency planning.
A question-and-answer session will follow each of the presentations. Go to http://www2.agilityrecovery.com/npm to register for any of the webinars.
