Nearly two-thirds of U.S. small businesses do not have an emergency or disaster preparedness plan in place. (Ad Council)
This despite the fact that about one in four small businesses will experience “a significant crisis” – hurricane, wildfire, tornado, power outage, flash flood, cyber breach, etc. – in any given year. (Association of Small Business Development Centers)
Sadly, four out of 10 of small businesses affected by a natural or man-made disaster never reopen their doors. (Insurance Information Institute)
I am interested in speaking with business owners who do not have emergency plans. I would like to know how to make planning an experience that would be more attractive to business owners and influential managers. I think this information would help me to be more effective as an advocate for my profession. Send me an email at email@example.com. Feel free to leave a comment.
