When business is disrupted, it can cost money. Lost revenues plus extra expenses mean reduced profits. Insurance does not cover all costs and cannot replace customers that defect to the competition. A business continuity plan to continue business is essential.

Owners of small businesses can acquire steps to develop a continuity plan by attending Alabama State University Small Business Development Center’s (SBDC) Virtual Disaster Preparedness Planning Virtual Course – Continued Operation Module 3.1 & 3.2[HS1]  scheduled from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 19[HS2]  with a repeat session on Oct. 21.

“When an incident disrupts business operations, resources will be needed to carry out recovery strategies and to restore normal business operations,” SBDC officials emphasized.

Participants are encouraged to complete the entire series for full benefit of the course.  Participants can also sign up for no cost one-on-one business advisement with the instructor for an individual assessment and assistance with creating their continuity plan.

To attend the virtual training on Oct.19, attendees must preregister at;  and for the Oct. 21 training session.
