Financially Prepare Northeast Ohio

If your business is disrupted, how would you be affected? Communities affected by disaster have a more difficult recovery when their business sector is slow or unable to recover. They need the stability and revenue generated by a solid business sector. Preplanning is the most effective way to ensure that your business will survive a business interruption.

  • Studies show a significant percentage of businesses affected by a disaster will eventually close.
  • Make sure you have an up- to-date and tested business continuity plan that addresses all the critical functions your business performs.
  • No business is immune from fire, storm damage, power outages, workplace violence, employee or competitor sabotage or media crisis.
  • Donít overestimate your business insurance coverage/benefits.
  • People do not make the best decisions in a crisis unless they are trained to do so and no one can consider all the ramifications of a crisis situation instantaneously.
  • Business continuity plans are most effective when they are developed by the company that will use them.

Fast Fact: A financially-prepared community is a financially-empowered community
