Learn How to Prepare for Disasters During National Preparedness Month: Webinar


National Preparedness Month

This year alone, small businesses nationwide encountered numerous challenges affecting their business operations and employees, from COVID-19, wildfires, hurricanes, and earthquakes.  These events are reminders that business owners with a plan to protect their organizations from the financial fallout have a greater chance of sustaining any effects caused by a disaster.  

September is National Preparedness Month, and this year’s theme is “Disasters Don’t Wait. Make your Plan Today.”   Join the  U.S. Small Business Administration, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety, and the Insurance Information Institute on Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 2 p.m. EDT for a live webinar on preparing for severe weather, future COVID-19 interruptions, and other disasters. In addition to presentations by experts from IBHS and Triple-I, two small business owners will share their stories of how they prepared for and successfully recovered from devastating disasters. 

The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance following a declared disaster 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.
