Having a disaster plan in place might not prevent the worst-case scenario, but it could increase a company’s odds of survival. According to FEMA, roughly 40 to 60 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster. Jason Frederick and Bert Morales of TCOR Management will examine several catastrophic scenarios and how they could be addressed:

  • Natural disasters (flooding, hurricane, fire, drought, etc.)
  • Man-made disasters (arson, information/data breach, fiber optic and electrical outages, etc.)
  • Workplace violence (employee, active shooter, property damage, etc.)

The Chamber’s NB Business University will host the seminar Emergency Planning: Information, Personnel, Physical Assets, Catastrophic Events on Tuesday, July 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Honors Hall. This seminar will address actions needed to properly plan for an emergency, including business continuity, crisis management and communication, and disaster recovery. 

Seminars are discounted for chamber members at $55 and available to the general public at $80. Tickets include lunch. This seminar is the second seminar of the CYA: Cover Your Assets. The first seminar was held on June 12 and focused on Cyber Security.
