Are you getting ready to hunker down for Winter Storm Q this afternoon? While the storm is predicted to be less severe than Nemo, it’s always good to be prepared.

The SBA  has assembled worksheets and resources to help you prepare your business for the next disaster.  Along with clean up, recovery, and disaster planning, the SBA has disaster specific information too, including:

  • Hurricanes
  • Winter Weather
  • Earthquakes
  • Tornadoes
  • Wildfires
  • Floods
  • Cyber Security
  • Workplace Hazards & First Aid

It never hurts to prepare your home for a disaster, as well.  Ready.gov has guides to help prepare you and your family for emergencies.

The site also showcases a unique map of historical storms and disasters. When you click on each state you can see what was happening the day before an incident as compared to the aftermath. If you have been putting off distaster planning for your home or business, this map might make you think twice.

Cheers and stay safe!
