eMacomb - Upcoming Events, Summer 2016

Super Prepared Business Conference returns in September

Hurricanes and earthquakes and mudslides, oh my!

While Macomb County is fortunate to not normally be affected by the types of natural disasters that plague other locales, there are other threats more common in Michigan that can halt normal business operations.

Did you know that an estimated 25 percent of all businesses never reopen following a major disaster?  

While today’s savvy business owner recognizes the importance of developing a solid business plan, many fail to plan and prepare for the unexpected.  Is your company truly prepared to deal with a flood or extended power outage or other emergency event?

You can protect your business by identifying the risks associated with natural and man-made disasters and then creating a plan of action should a situation occur.  By keeping these plans updated, you can help ensure the survival of your business.
