Developed and distributed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Emergency Management Guide for Business & Industry provides step-by-step advice on creating a business disaster preparedness program. The guide is entry level material, so anyone with a desire to implement an emergency management plan can use this document to get started.
Emergency management and disaster preparedness are processes undertaken to prepare for, mitigate, and appropriately respond to emergencies and disasters that may impact your business.
What one business considers a disaster another may consider a minor inconvenience, so the FEMA guide is structured to help businesses of all shapes and sizes develop an appropriate plan. Whether you're a small retail operation with a single location or a nationwide conglomerate, the FEMA disaster preparedness guide provides a process that you can follow to help prepare your organization for the worst.
