Shawano County Emergency Management would like to personally invite you to attend a six-part workshop series entitled ‘Safeguard Your Business from Disaster.’
If you’re wondering why you should attend, an estimated 40% of small businesses never reopen after a disaster according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Our goal with this workshop series is to provide you the tools and information to put your business in a better position to recover after a disaster by preparing now. Disasters do happen in Shawano County. In 2015, Shawano County experienced two tornado touchdowns and one tornado touchdown has already been recorded in 2016.
AUGUST 3: ACTIVE SHOOTER: Learn from a Shawano County Sheriff's Office Deputy about steps you can take to protect your business in the event of an active shooter.
AUGUST 17: CYBER SECURITY: Join in for a panel discussion by FBI cyber security specialists to learn about vulnerabilities and actions you can take.
AUGUST 31: EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS: Interact with your local emergency manager to learn what their role is during an emergency and steps you can take now to prepare.
SEPTEMBER 7: WEATHER AWARENESS: Hear from the National Weather Service Warning Coordinator Meteorologist about severe weather.
SEPTEMBER 21: CRIME PREVENTION: Converse with a panel of local law enforcement professionals on ways to make your business less vulnerable to crime.
OCTOBER 5: CONTINUITY OF OPERATIONS: Gain the tools necessary to develop a strategy to keep your business operational after a major disaster (i.e. tornado, flood, power outage, etc.).
Businesses within Shawano County, Menominee County, and Stockbridge Tribe are invited to attend. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for the workshops you plan to attend.
Funding for the workshop series is being provided by a homeland security grant.
