Getting Back to Business After a Disaster
If your business closes because of a disaster, you have five days to re-open it.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, 90 percent of businesses that don't open within that time frame fail.
Businesses that do survive often take years to get back to their pre-disaster operating level.
The purpose of the Florida Business Continuity Initiative is to provide organizations of all types and sizes the information, tools and resources they need to prepare for, endure and recover from natural or manmade disasters.
The Florida Business Continuity Initiative is unique in that it offers a real-time interactive resource tracker that will allow businesses affected by disaster to reach out for help, and for unaffected businesses and organizations to offer assistance.
In the event of a disaster, this website and its mobile version will allow you to post your business needs and view available resources to help you get your business back up and running quickly and safely.
