SBA releases disaster-planning guide for small businesses

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

The U.S. Small Business Administration has created a new disaster planning guide.

The 10-page guide offers tips about developing a plan to protect both customers and employees in the event of a disaster.

“The most successful recovery efforts are always preceded by good planning,” SBA Deputy Administrator Jovita Carranza said. “The more preparation that businesses complete before a disaster, the better able they are to rebuild and reopen quickly after a disaster.”

Electronic versions of the guide can be found online, and hard copies will be distributed by SBA disaster field offices.
