When, Not If: Are Your Region’s Businesses Prepared for a Disaster?

What's the content?

Businesses can face dramatic consequences in the wake of a disaster, as well as sudden economic losses and dislocation.

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. Building economic resilience means communities are better positioned to recover when crises happen.
