Businesses can face dramatic consequences in the wake of a disaster, as well as sudden economic losses and dislocation. In this webinar, guest presenter Leann Hackman-Carty explains how economic developers can prepare, mitigate and (sometimes) prevent disasters. She reviews how you can help businesses in your area be better able to respond, recover, and remain more resilient in the face of disruptive change.
