Yesterday's blog commenced a series on Small Business Emergency Readiness. The goal is to alarm new and established small business owners. This post will offer some ideas for a Small Business checklist that should serve as a guide. Please be sure to customize the list that best meets your organization's needs. Let's begin.
During this series, emergency readiness applies to internal and external disasters, including natural disasters. While this may be a tricky topic, it's a subject matter worth your time and energy. The best form of readiness comes in the form of knowledge and preparation. The first step is to communicate the intent of the Emergency Readiness plan. A Small Business Emergency Readiness plan needs to be accessible and clear to everyone, including your family members and your team.
