Building Resilience Capacity for Natural Disasters

Wed 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Topic: Disaster Mitigation

According to FEMA, roughly 40 to 60 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster. The “Building Resilience Capacity for Natural Disasters” workshop will help business owners learn ways to prepare and respond to a potential disaster. Presented by the Small Business Center of Craven Community College, New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce, and Carolina Small Business Development Fund. Whether a retail, office or home office location, small business operators will learn methods and resources to mitigate potential risks associated with natural disasters, and be prepared for non-natural business interruption as well. The workshop panelists include representatives from Carolina Small Business Development Fund, U.S. Small Business Administration, Choice Flood Insurance, IT Works Wilmington and ServPro of Granville. Additional support resources will be present and/or will provide information. NOTE: If you feel you are needing Hurricane Florence disaster recovery assistance, you are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be served.
