SBA offers webinar on handling disaster-related losses

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration from 2 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 12, for a free webinar on how small businesses handled disaster-related losses in 2015, lessons learned, and resulting best practices.

The year 2015 began with a powerful nor’easter dumping several feet of snow in Massachusetts, forcing major road closings and flight cancellations in the Northeast. In October, heavy rains in the Charleston, South Carolina area resulted in flooding with widespread losses. The year is ending with deadly tornadoes, floods and snow.

Factors like these cause financial losses to small businesses every day. A solid business continuity plan will protect your organization and your assets while ensuring a quick recovery when a disaster occurs.

Topics include:

• A retrospective of major disaster events in 2015 causing business interruptions

• Steps and tools your organization needs in order to be prepared

• Actionable ideas that can be applied today to increase your organization’s preparedness

To register for the   “2015 Year-in-Review: Valuable Lessons & Best Practices” webinar, visit http://agil.me/1T22Cr5.

Since 2010, SBA has partnered with Agility Recovery to offer business continuity strategies at http://www.preparemybusiness.org where visitors can check out past webinars and download helpful 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.
