Small Business Disaster Preparedness

Living along the Gulf Coast, it’s important for businesses to know how to prepare for disasters so you know what to do before, during and after a storm to protect your business. The Florida SBDC at UWF offers resources to help you prepare before a disaster, as well as Business Continuation Specialists to help affected businesses recover after the disaster has passed.
