Business Disaster Planning
Vermont businesses should plan to stay in business in the event that a disaster affects them or their suppliers. Developing a business continuity plan now may be the difference between surviving or going out of business in the wake of a disaster.
- Ready Business — Plan to stay in business! (FEMA)
- Prepare Your Workplace and "Preparing Your Business for the Unthinkable" (PDF, American Red Cross)
- Emergency Planning & Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) from the Vermont Division of Emergency Management
- Open for Business: A Disaster Protection and Recovery Planning Toolkit for the Small to Mid-Sized Business from the Institute for Business & Home Safety
A key piece of business continuity planning is recognizing that one of your most important assests is your employees. Their first concern will be for the safety of their family, so it is in your best interest to help them be prepared so they are more likely to be able to assist the business.
