TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS
Ellsworth – Ever walked into your office, found that the heat went off sometime over the past 48 hours, the pipes froze, burst and poured water over computers, printers, supplies, carpet, basically ruining your capabilities to run your business? It happens! So does the sudden loss of a business partner due to illness or death, a massive security breach to your computer files, and the unthinkable; violence in the workplace.
The Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Hancock County Emergency Management Agency and Jones, Kuriloff, Sargent Attorneys at Law are presenting a four-part series on taking care of your business. How to get thru an event, but even more important how to plan for and mitigate an event, before it happens. This series will give you the tools you and your business need for planning and taking care of what keeps your business up and running in the event of an emergency or disaster.
The four-part series will begin with “All Hazards Business Plans”. An overall look at all types of events, and the basics of planning for continuing to operate, during and or after a disaster or other incident. Hancock County Emergency Management Agency director Andrew Sankey will bring his team to City Hall Auditorium for this informative first session. “Emergency plans for schools, public buildings and large events are mandatory for us now” states Sankey “The need is for private businesses and organizations to be able to have the same information and training.”
All sessions will be free for chamber members. RSVP for session one to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 667-5584
