Florida’s Department of Financial Services hosting disaster preparedness webinars

Florida’s Department of Financial Services is hosting a series of free disaster preparedness webinars for small business owners ahead of the start of the 2013 Hurricane Season. The webinars are part the “Protect Your Home Base” initiative aimed at helping small businesses plan and prepare for a natural disaster.

“As a business owner, you wear many hats and are focused on several different aspects of your business,” said Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater. “The Federal Emergency Management Agency estimates that 40 to 60 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster. The impact of a natural disaster can be devastating, and I urge you to protect your home base and prepare today.”

Webinar topics include ensuring proper insurance coverage for your business, conducting a vulnerability analysis, hardening your business to withstand a storm, and recovering after a storm hits.

The webinars will take place on Tuesday, May 21 at 10:00 a.m.; Wednesday, May 22 at 12:00 p.m.; and Thursday May 23 at 5:30 p.m. For more information and to register, visit www.MyFloridaCFO.com/YMM.
