SBA, Nationwide Produce Small Business Disaster Preparedness Guide

An estimated 25 percent of businesses do not reopen following a major disaster, but that percentage would be lower if more businesses were prepared, which is the idea behind the teaming of the U.S. Small Business Administration and Ohio-based Nationwide Insurance® to launch a disaster planning guide for small business owners.

The free, 10-page guide provides information business owners need to develop an effective plan to protect customers and employees in the event of a disaster. The guide provides key disaster preparedness strategies to help small businesses identify potential hazards, create plans to remain in operation if the office is unusable, and understand the limitations of their insurance coverage.

Hard copies of the guide will be distributed by SBA field offices, its resource partners around the country, and disaster field offices. Nationwide will make additional copies available to its agents for distribution. An electronic version of the guide is available online at http://www.sba.gov/services/disasterassistance/disasterpreparedness/index.html.
