Disaster Planning: Protect Your Business!

Jun 16 3:30 pm — 5:00 pm

Event Details

Earthquakes, wildfires, tsunamis, and mass shootings are all disasters we could face during the time we own our businesses. Fire season and potential Public Safety Power Shut-Offs are happening sooner and sooner. CalFire officially stated there is no “fire season” any more, but is now preparing all year.  According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, 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 yearly fires in Mendocino and Lake Counties. Whether it is a natural disaster or not, emergency preparedness is an important part of any business plan.

To address this all-important issue, we’re offering a 90 minute training module and a 56-page digital 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 Center will give you the tools to develop a plan for your business — to weather all kinds of storms, and even just the unexpected.

Attendees will come away from this workshop with a solid plan on:

  • Emergency Preparedness Continuity Plan
  • Emergency and crisis planning for your employees
  • Proper Insurance coverage
  • Asset valuation
  • Local, State and Federal Resources
  • Preparing for loss
