What Are the Top Five Disaster Risks to Small Businesses?

Posted by IASourceLink Admin on Jun 24, 2014

Two major challenges small business owners face after disasters are sales losses and a diminished customer base.  In a survey of 7,500 small and medium-sized businesses by the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), 62% said losing profits and clients was their biggest post-disaster challenge. 

Whether it’s a fire, flood or tornado, small businesses face an uphill trek when it comes to rebuilding in the aftermath of a disaster.  That’s why it’s important to have a recovery plan in place.

Assessing your company’s risks is one of the first steps in creating an effective business continuity plan.  Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration on Tuesday, July 8, for an online discussion on how to protect your business before a disaster strikes.     

SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies at its “PrepareMyBusiness” website.  On that site you can download disaster planning tip sheets and view archived webinars.

The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. To learn more, visit SBA Disaster webpage.
