FEMA & Your Business.

Let't talk turkey. FEMA may have to help your business recover from a disaster one day. We can't predict unexpected weather events or other emergencies. But, we can prepare for them. As a business owner, you should understand what role FEMA plays in disaster recovery. I speak more about this topic in my up coming book. However, I'm going to list the basics below with some resources. Print this document out and keep it with your other emergency related docs.

If subscribing to more than one list, please send a separate text for each disaster type you would like to subscribe to. There is no limit to the number of lists you can subscribe to. Sending STOP will automatically unsubscribe you from all our lists. You can re-subscribe to the list(s) of your choice one-by-one. Updates are bi-monthly and are meant to help businesses and people prepare for and respond to a disaster.
