CLOVERDALE: The Important Stuff - What to Do When Disaster Strikes #76076

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 6:00pm to 8:00pm

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a natural disaster. We know the reality of this fact all too well. Whether it is a natural disaster or not, emergency preparedness is an important part of any business plan.

Our program includes a 2-hour training module and a 56-page workbook. This workshop will give you the tools to develop a plan for your business -- to weather all kinds of storms, and even just the unexpected.

Attendees will come away from this workshop with a solid plan on:

  • Keeping documents safe
  • Emergency and crisis planning for your employees
  • Proper Insurance coverage
  • Asset valuation
  • Local, State and Federal Resources
  • Preparing for loss
  • Recovery planning
