Earthquake Prep: Take one step today to reduce risk to your business

Add your email address at the Resilient Business Challenge on OutsmartDisaster.comThis is the most important step you can take.

LAEDC is raising awareness of this new no-cost state resource for businesses, to help reduce the risk that the next earthquake poses to an organization’s continuity.  Your business probably has way more exposure to risk than is wise, and the Challenge will help you identify those weak spots and take simple actions to reduce risk.

Here are just a few of the tips you’ll find there:

  • Meet with your financial institution to discuss financing options post-disaster and contingent lines of credit.
  • Meet with your payroll processor to discuss possibilities for an automated payroll run in the event of a disaster.
  • Store back-up copies of data and records at a secure, but accessible offsite location; utilizing “the cloud” is a great option.
  • Establish a current photo or video inventory of your premises, equipment, inventory, supplies, etc.  Store those pics to the cloud.

So, take a minute to register your email address at LAEDC’s partner Outsmart Disaster.  It doesn’t cost a thing…but inaction can sink your entire organization.
