Be Prepared & Disaster Resilient
How quickly your company can get back to business after an earthquake, a fire, or a flood often depends on emergency planning done today. While the City of Riverside is working hard to prevent and prepare for all types of disasters, the lessons of the 1992 Northridge Earthquake, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and Hurricane Katrina demonstrate the importance of businesses being prepared.
America's businesses form the backbone of the nation's economy; small businesses alone account for more than 99% of all companies with employees, employ 50% of all private sector workers and provide nearly 45% of the nation's payroll. If businesses are READY to survive and recover, the nation and our economy are more secure. A commitment to planning today will help support employees, customers, the community, the local economy and even the country. It also protects your business investment and gives your company a greater chance for survival.
