Get Your Emergency Preparedness Plan On
Guest post by Faizun Kamal, public affairs director for Verzion.
It’s a brand new year, so why not take the time now to ensure your small business is protected before, during and after an emergency or disaster? The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Resolve to be Ready campaign is not only about protecting individuals and providing resources for them, it also has a wealth of preparedness information for businesses.
It doesn’t take much time to develop a plan to protect your business if disaster strikes. A preparedness program includes five steps:
1. Program management
4. Testing and Exercises
5. Program Improvement
The Resolve to be Ready site also includes lots of tips on how you can protect your small business and get tech ready.
Roughly half of all Americans make New Year’s resolutions and commit to improving their lifestyles or reaching a long-term goal. This year, make that resolution to protect your small business against disasters.
If you already put a disaster plan in place, congratulations! Please share some of your tips here.
