Disaster Preparedness Workshop For Small Businesses in Ventura County

A free disaster preparedness workshop for small businesses, "Ready to Resume," will be held on Wednesday, July 20 in Ventura County. It will provide participants the tools to prepare for unforeseen business disruption and disaster.

 
PRLog - Jul. 11, 2011 - VENTURA, CALIF.--A free disaster preparedness workshop for small businesses, "Ready to Resume," will be held on Wednesday, July 20 at the Ventura County Office of Education Conference Center in Camarillo (5100 Adolfo Rd.). Sponsored by the Ventura County Economic Development Association (VCEDA), Ventura County Emergency Planning Council and the LSU Stephenson Disaster Management Institute, the workshop will provide participants the tools to prepare for unforeseen business disruption and disaster.

   Disasters for a small business can come in many forms--fires, floods, earthquakes and manmade calamities. The workshop will enable attendees to better understand their disaster risk and suggest actions that might be appropriate following business disruption. The workshop includes a "Red Cross Ready Rating" assessment exercise and a workbook containing emergency resources. Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop to the workshop.

   "Ready to Resume" is from 8:00 a.m. to noon in the Ventura Room of the conference center. Lunch is included. From 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., a free training session will be available in "Open for Business," a continuity planning program presented by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety.

   "The Stephenson Disaster Management Institute at LSU is a leader in proactive disaster response management," says Bill Buratto, VCEDA president and CEO. "Its goal is to ready businesses and communities for the worst before disaster strikes."

   Funding for the workshop is from a State Homeland Security sub-grant recently received by VCEDA for its "Ventura County Ready Business Campaign," a program designed to educate Ventura County businesses about disaster preparedness and response.

   Sign up for the July 20 workshop by emailing ehymel1@tigers.lsu.edu. Space is limited. For more information, call VCEDA at 805-676-1332.
