Preparedness Tips to be Shared at Free Webinar Hosted by SBA and Agility Recovery

Two major challenges small business owners face after disasters are sales losses and a diminished customer base. In a survey of 7,500 small and medium sized businesses done by the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), 62% said losing profits and clients was their biggest post-disaster challenge.

Whether it’s a fire, flood or tornado, small businesses face an uphill trek when it comes to rebuilding in the aftermath of a disaster. That’s why it’s important to have a recovery plan in place.

Assessing your company’s risks is one of the first steps in creating an effective business continuity plan. Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration on Tuesday, July 8, for an online discussion on how to protect your business before a disaster strikes.

SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies at its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to download disaster planning tip sheets and to view archived webinars.

The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. To learn more, visit www.sba.gov/disaster.
