One in four small businesses never reopen after a disaster. Nine in ten fail within a year unless they are able to reopen within five days of a disaster. Don’t let your business or non-profit become part of this statistic. Learn how to disaster-proof your operations from wildfire and other disasters at this upcoming webinar on August 20.
Many towns in the Sierra Nevada region are “severe wildfire risk” communities, CalFIRE’s highest-risk category. Wildfire season is lengthening, and wildfires are increasingly destructive and fast moving.
At the same time, many communities are unaware of and ill prepared for the risks posed by wildfire. At the Wildfire-Proof Your Operations webinar, attendees will learn how to prepare their employees, operations, and assets before disaster strikes. Join the Sierra Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Partnership to learn about understanding your risks and your environment, assessing your readiness, taking action, updating and testing your resilience plan, and engaging with community resiliency efforts.
You'll leave this webinar knowing why organizational preparedness is important, what free, accessible resources can help you build resilience into your operations, and having made a solid start on your own resiliency plan.
This webinar is hosted in partnership with the Sierra Small Business Development Center.
