Prepare Your Own Business Continuity Plan BEFORE Disaster Strikes

Jean Paul Aliaga cautions, Prepare Your Own Business Continuity Plan BEFORE Disaster Strikes

A business continuity plan will help you plan for the safety and survival of your employees and business infrastructure and ensure that you retain your customers.

Is a business continuity plan in place in case of a disaster? Don't procrastinate; do it now.

Disasters such as hurricanes, floods, fires, computer hacking, data crashes, power outages, hazardous material spills, storms, tornadoes, earthquakes and theft are unpredictable and devastating. Is a business emergency preparedness plan in place to help employees respond to emergencies and disasters?

"A business continuity plan will help you plan for the safety and survival of your employees and business infrastructure to ensure that you retain your customers and continue to serve them despite economic hardship from disasters beyond your control," said Jean Paul Aliaga, Florida MEP Disaster Recovery Expert and webinar instructor.

"Many businesses that are forced to close after a disaster NEVER reopen," Aliaga said. "The Florida MEP (FLMEP) Webinar “Disaster-Proof Your Business” will help you get started on a business continuity plan to prepare your small business to avoid downtime after a disaster and improve chances for business survival."
