Free Webinar encourages disaster preparedness planning

The U.S. Small Business Administration will offer two online disaster preparedness events next on June 22 and June 24.

On June 22, Agility Recovery Solutions CEO Bob Boyd will discuss 10 Steps to Business Preparedness.  Boyd will highlight key aspects of business continuity planning, including risk assessment, data back-up, crisis communications and insurance coverage.

On June 24, SBA’s monthly Web Chat will be hosted by Nashville business owner Genma Holmes, CEO of Holmes Pest Control.  Holmes will share her experience of how another business owner’s losses after Hurricane Katrina inspired her to develop her own preparedness plan.  Because she was ready for the disaster, Holmes was able to resume operations just one day after cleaning up after a recent flood in Nashville.
