Start Building Your Disaster Recovery Plan Today – Get Tips at Free Webinar Hosted by SBA and Agility Recovery

WASHINGTON — It could be that there’s not enough time. Or lack of funds. Maybe you just believe you don’t know how to do it.

Small businesses everywhere create their own risk of losing everything by not having a disaster plan in place. The first steps toward building a business continuity plan are surprisingly inexpensive and can be accomplished within a day.

For instance, a call or email to your insurance agent will give you an idea of how adequately prepared you are to cover rebuilding costs after your place of business suffers major property damage.

You can also get help with your plan on Tuesday, Nov. 17 during a free webinar hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery. Business continuity best practices that require a minimal commitment of time and resources will be discussed.

SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies through the “PrepareMyBusiness” website. Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to access past webinars and for disaster preparedness checklists.

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.
