BUSINESSES


 

Up to 40% of businesses never recover after experiencing a major disaster. You need an emergency business plan to help protect your people, data and other assets. 

 

 Some things you can do to be Business Ready include:

  • Develop a Business Continuity Plan.
  • Prepare your Business Emergency Response Plan.
  • Practice your Business Emergency Response Plan through training and drills.
  • Be informed of local hazards that could affect your business.
  • Review your insurance coverage.
  • Secure your facility and equipment.
  • Improve cyber security.
  • Promote family and individual preparedness.
  • Register your business for VC Alert emergency notifications.

 

 

If businesses are READY to survive and recover, the nation and our economy are more secure. A commitment to planning today will help support employees, customers, the community, the local economy and even the country. It also protects your business investment and gives your company a better chance for survival.
