Will You Be Ready if Disaster Strikes?
We know business owners put out proverbial fires on a daily basis -- but what if your business really did experience a fire? What if your office flooded or a tornado struck your store? Would you be prepared? No one likes to think about such devastating circumstances but being proactive and developing a plan will help you bounce back quicker and sometimes even stronger.
The Knoxville Chamber has partnered with the American Red Cross of East Tennessee to promote its Ready Rating® Program. This program, which is sponsored nationally by SERVPRO and Anheuser Busch, is designed to help businesses, schools, and organizations become prepared for disasters and other emergencies. If you become a Ready Rating member, you receive access to one-of-a-kind tools, resources, and information for evaluating and improving your ability to withstand disaster, maintain operations, and protect lives and property. Whether you are taking your first steps in writing a disaster plan or have a fully-functioning emergency management program, the Ready Rating program can help you achieve a higher level of preparedness. It is a free service and available online at www.readyrating.org.
