Preparedness Planning for Your Business
READY BUSINESS TOOLKITS
The Ready Business Program allows businesses to take action to protect employees, protect customers, and help ensure continuity. The FEMA toolkit offers business leaders a step-by-step guide to building preparedness within an organization. The toolkit contains the following sections:
- Identify Your Risk
- Develop A Plan
- Take Action
- Be Recognized and Inspire Others
If your organization is vulnerable to hurricanes, it is important that you understand your risk, develop a preparedness and mitigation plan, and take action. Doing so will not only increase the safety of employees and customers, but it will help you remain in business after disasters, such as tropical storms and hurricanes, strike. Maintaining business continuity is important. When you are able to continue operations after a disaster, you also improve your community’s ability to recover.
FEMA has numerous Preparedness Planning for Your Business available for businesses to be prepared for "All Hazards."
