As mentioned in an earlier posting regarding National Preparedness Month 2012, many resources are being offered this month of September to better understand and improve disaster preparedness capabilities for yourself, your family, your community and where you work.

You can get help with your own business preparedness planning through a series of free webinars hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery.

This September series of free webinars is presented in collaboration with FEMA’s Ready Campaign, as part of National Preparedness Month 2012.

The SBA wants to help business owners take charge of the well-being of their own companies, the safety of their employees, and the sustenance of their local economies by being prepared to rebound quickly from any kind of disaster.

Here’s a list of the webinars, held each Wednesday in September at 2 p.m. ET:

Sept. 5: “10 Steps to Prepare Any Organization for Disaster” with an introduction from James Rivera, Associate Administrator for SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance.

Sept. 12: “Protecting Your Organization by Preparing Your Employees”

Sept. 19: “Utilization of Social Media during a Crisis”

Sept. 26: “Surviving a Crisis, Large or Small: Real Life Lessons Learned” Business owners who recovered from disasters discuss their proactive emergency planning.

A question and answer session will follow each of the presentations.

If applicable, please pass this information along to those business continuity, risk management or PS-Prep Strategy planning team members in your organization.
