Emergency Preparation for Your Business
January 7 @ 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a natural disaster. At West Business Development Center we know the reality of this fact all too well. We learned a great deal about the importance of preparation and lack of adequate documentation from our rural business communities after the recent fires in Mendocino and Lake Counties. Whether it’s a natural disaster or not, emergency preparedness is an important part of any business plan.
To address this all-important issue, we’ve created a program, with the support of a Wells Fargo Economic Opportunity Grant, on “What to do when disaster strikes your business.” Our program includes a 2-hour training module and a 56-page workbook. Anyone who attends our Emergency Preparation for Your Business workshop also receives 10 hours of free one-on-one consultation with an advisor to help you get organized and be better prepared. West BDC will give you the tools to develop a plan for your business – to weather all kinds of storms, even the unexpected.
Attendees will come away from this workshop with a solid plan on:
- Keeping documents safe
- Emergency and crisis planning for your employees
- Proper Insurance coverage
- Asset valuation
- Local, State and Federal Resources
- Preparing for loss
