The Louisiana SBDC along with Livingston Economic Development Council will host an event designed to help local business prepare for events that may interrupt their business.
The seminar, “When Disaster Strikes: Emergency Preparedness for Businesses” will be held on Wednesday, June 10th from 9:00am to 12:00pm at the Livingston Literacy and Technology Center in Walker.
A small business’s survival can mean more than weathering the economy’s ups and downs, or attracting consumer interest. Sometimes it means recovering from disaster. That disaster can come in the form of a fire that rips through your office, or the building housing it, a flood that soaks the business district in which your company is located, or a tornado or hurricane that batters your city. Such calamities can leave your business miraculously unscathed, moderately damaged but still functional, or reduced to ashes and debris. While such disasters are, thankfully, infrequent, planning for their possibility is something that every small business owners should do – before the unexpected happens.
Topical areas for this event will include: local response updates, gauging business readiness, creating a business continuity plan, selecting the right insurance, data security and crisis communications.
