You Need an Emergency Prep Plan for Your Business—Here’s Why
If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. Most businesses in the United States and across the world have been impacted in one way or another by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic struck without much advance notice and had ramifications no one expected.
Many of those businesses were forced to close, at least temporarily—and some never reopened at all. That shines a light on a startling fact: It can take only one disruption to push a business off its tracks.
According to FEMA, 40% of small businesses never reopen after a disaster strikes. Of those that do reopen, around a quarter of them close again within one calendar year.
It’s more important than ever to have an emergency plan in place for your business. But the reality is—most businesses don’t.
Three-quarters of all small businesses don’t have a plan in place. That has to change! You’ve worked hard to set your business up for success, and you need to plan ahead so you can keep it there.

This plan outlines what to do in nearly every situation, from natural disasters to data loss. The goal is that if your business is ever faced with disaster, your team will know exactly what to do, how to do it and when to do it.
