Is your organization prepared for emergencies? Olathe faces several natural and man-made hazards that disrupt your business.
Why is this important? The Small Business Administration (SBA) estimates that 40 percent of small businesses will not reopen after disaster, 25 percent more will close within one year, and 75 percent of businesses without continuity planning will fail within three years of a disaster. Businesses, large and small, are at risk—as are your employees, customers, and the community you serve.
The good news is that the actions to protect your business, employees, and customers are simple, scalable, and many are very low cost to implement. The Olathe Fire Department Emergency Management Ready Business Workshop will provide you with actionable information to protect your people, property, and operations by assisting you to Identify Your Risk, Develop a Plan, Take Action, and Be Recognized and Inspire Others.
The Ready Business Workshop will provide:
• Experts to explain risks specific to Olathe
• Information explaining the level of support you can expect from your local emergency management agency if a large-scale disaster occurs;
• Preparedness actions you can take before, during, and after disasters; and
• Provide simple materials and helpful links to additional resources.
This event will be held on Tuesday, September 19th from 9am until 3pm at the Olathe Downtown Library.
Admission is free.
Maintaining business continuity is important for you, and when you are able to continue operations after a disaster, you will improve your community’s ability to recover as well.
Regardless of your experience level in preparing for disasters, this FREE workshop is for you. Please join us!
