TITLE: COMMUNITY FUTURES INTRODUCES A FREE NEW TOOL TO HELP BUSINESSES PLAN FOR DISASTER
Community Futures Nadina has launched a new online tool that will help prepare for and mitigate the impact of disasters that affect their business. The tool is free for all businesses to use.
The past two years have been challenging for businesses of all sizes. British Columbia experienced multiple natural disasters on top of having to cope with the lingering effects of COVID-19 on the economy.
The Business Continuity Planning Tool will help business owners identify hazards to their business, core assets and functions, and how to mitigate those risks. The tool has been tested in group settings for over four years and has received glowing reviews.
“We’re excited to announce this free online tool that allows business owners to focus on what they can control when disaster strikes. It will assist you to be prepared to respond and poised to recover. We highly recommend this tool because it has been proven to be straightforward to use and guides you easily through each step at your own pace. The future is uncertain and the best way to face this uncertainly is with a well-made plan.” – Wendy McCulloch, Executive Director of Community Futures BC
Businesses located in the Bulkley Valley and Lakes District that are interested in learning more about the tool and helping their business prepare for disasters are encouraged to reach out to their local Community Futures office. For more information, please contact our office!
