Is your business prepared to continue operations after a disaster or unexpected event? Do you have a plan for how your business will respond to floods, power outages, or other hazards? These are questions we want you to be able to answer! Businesses are a cornerstone of our economy and business survival is key to maintaining a strong community.
FEMA Region 10 and our partners are presenting a free Business Resiliency Workshop in Pierce County to provide businesses with ways to ensure they continue to operate in the event of a disaster. This workshop will educate business owners on employee readiness, temporary power solutions, and creating contingency plans for cash flow and e-commerce. Business owners will receive business preparedness resources and the opportunity to speak with local, state, and federal emergency preparedness personnel.
