Last Year's Fires and Floods Remind Us We Need to Plan For Our Business to Survive

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, only 40 percent of small businesses reopen after a disaster and another 25 percent that reopen, fail after one year. Preparing your business for a disaster can help save lives, merchandise, money, and your livelihood. The new year is an excellent time to prepare!

Join Community and Economic Development Extension Educator Steve Groner to learn how business owners, managers, and employees can reduce risk, proceed with plans, understand business continuity and survival, and develop a plan.

The workshop is free, but please register by February 5, 2020, by calling 618-943-5018. The program will be on February 12, 2020, from 8 am until noon at the Clark County Extension Office at 15493 N. State Hwy 1, Marshall, Illinois.
