One of the first steps that businesses can take to be READY is to conduct a risk assessment.
Know what kinds of emergencies might affect your business, both internally and externally. Find out which natural disasters are most common in your area, and learn more about what do do during a biological, chemical, explosive, nuclear or radiological attack.
The Department of Homeland Security’s website, READY.gov, outlines common sense measures that business owners and managers can take to start getting READY. It provides practical steps and easy-to-use templates to help you plan for your company’s future.
