Businesses and local organizations are all vital parts of a community. When disasters strike, it is often these groups that are an important resource to help support those in need. It is also vital that these organizations recover quickly to enable the community to function after a disaster.
In order for businesses and organizations to respond to their needs and support the community in a safe and effective way, it is important to plan, prepare, and practice before a disaster occurs.
