Is your business ready for disaster?
Communities survive disasters only if their businesses survive. But many small business owners are so busy running day-to-day operations that they don’t dedicate any time to prepare for an event that could shut down their business for days, weeks or months at a time.
And it’s not just large-scale disasters that can cause a business to close. Power outages, fires or even gas leaks could limit access to your facility and cause a major disruption.
To help small business owners do a quick self-assessment, the Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) developed “10 Questions: Is Your Business Ready?” By taking the short quiz and then ranking preparedness based on “yes” answers, business owners will learn how disaster-ready they are.
Click on the link above, or visit the IBHS Web site and click on the Open for Business (sm) logo to take the 10 Questions quiz.
After completing the quiz, site visitors will be directed to the Institute’s free disaster planning toolkit that will help them take the next step toward developing property protection and continuity plans. The Open for Business (sm) Toolkit helps businesses reduce the potential for loss should disaster strike and reopen more quickly if it’s forced to close.
