A date is set for the small business fair
Whatcom COAD September Small Business Disaster Preparedness and Continuity Planning Fair
Of course, once you’ve set a date it has to change. So, rather than the late September date we talked about at the COAD meeting ten days ago, we have changed the date to September 13 from 1- 5 at the Health Education Center.
Those of you that haven’t been able to attend the last couple of COAD meetings, please try to come to the May meeting so we can get geared up for this preparedness event. We’ll need lots of people for many tasks! The May meeting will be Tuesday, May 15 at 3 PM at the HEC, as usual.
I’m enclosing the April meeting minutes for a bit more detail on our planning (thank you Patrick Hurley!) and Patrick recommends these links on business/organizational continuity planning:
-FEMA's resources for preparing your business: http://www.ready.gov/business We may wish to invite a FEMA representative who could explain these resources and tools to attendees.
