Assess your company’s disaster readiness: free SBA/Agility webinar, Oct. 16

October 10th, 2012 / By: / Industry News

When it comes to emergency planning, the mind set of many business owners often falls somewhere between being proactive or reactive. Taking the first step—determining your risks— is a good start towards developing a business continuity plan best suited for the needs of your organization.

Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will hold a free webinar on Tuesday, October 16, to provide information about the American Red Cross’ Ready Rating program. The Ready Rating program is a simple yet thorough self–assessment tool that can help businesses think and plan ahead to protect employees and operations. Tom Heneghan, manager of preparedness at the American Red Cross, will take webinar participants on a step–by–step tour of the Ready Rating program, and discuss important new enhancements.

SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies through its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit the website to access previous webinars and find additional preparedness tips. The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low–interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. Space is limited; register online.
