Is Your Business Ready & Prepared for the Unexpected?

The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention have prepared many very useful documents and tools to help small businesses be better prepared to react in the event of a disaster (man-made or natural). The Health Department encourages all businesses to have a Disaster Plan. Plans do not need to be complicated, but should be written and understood by employees.
