Emergency Preparedness for your Business or Organization by Rachel Heckscher

Monday, June 23, 2014

As you may already know, the 2014 Pacific hurricane season has officially started. So, are you prepared for a disaster or public health emergency? Learn how to get started with a preparedness strategy for your organization. Business owners invest a tremendous amount of time, money and resources to make their ventures successful, and yet, while the importance of emergency planning may seem self-evident, it is often put on the back burner. For small business owners, being prepared can mean staying in business following a disaster. An estimated 25 percent of businesses do not reopen following a major disaster, according to the Institute for Business and Home Safety. Rachel Heckscher has been working with the Department of Health to promote emergency preparedness since she arrived on Maui in 2005. She is also the Coordinator of Maui County Health Volunteers. Her background is in public health education, infectious disease epidemiology, and Spanish language interpreting.
