Workplace Preparedness Training

  • Red Cross instructor teaching a class

Whether you are a business owner, a manager or an employee, disaster preparedness is critical to your bottom-line and to the welfare of your fellow employees.

How prepared is your business?

  • If your employees aren't prepared at home, they're probably not coming into work when an emergency strikes.
  • Power outages, brown-outs or surges can affect your daily business operations.
  • A flood might not put your business under water, but it could prevent customers and supplies from reaching you.
  • As many as 40% of small businesses do not reopen following a major disaster like a flood or earthquake?
