Small or large, every business has an obligation to prepare for emergencies and disasters. Why? Because 15-40 percent of businesses fail following a natural or manmade disaster and 94 percent of small business owners believe a disaster could seriously disrupt their business with the next two years.
These and other findings depict a large deficit between public perceptions of the importance of emergency preparation and those households, businesses, schools and organizations that have concrete, sustainable plans in place.
To close these gaps, the American Red Cross Ready Rating™ program is designed to help your business become better prepared for disasters and other emergencies.
