Ready Business Workshop “How-To” Guide
This “How-To” guide explains how to plan for and deliver effective Ready Business workshops that align with the Ready hazard toolkits.
Earthquake “QuakeSmart” Toolkit
Unlike other natural disasters, earthquakes occur without warning and cannot be predicted. Much of the United States is at some risk for earthquakes, not just the West Coast, so it is important that you understand your risk, develop preparedness and mitigation plans, and take action.
Many parts of the United States may be affected by tropical storms and hurricanes, resulting in heavy rains, strong winds, wind-driven rain, coastal and inland floods, tornadoes, and coastal storm surges. The Ready Business Hurricane Toolkit helps leaders take action to protect employees, protect customers and help ensure business continuity.
Severe Wind/Tornado Toolkit
Tornados, straight line and severe winds don’t just happen in Tornado Alley. Most of the United States is at risk for damaging winds—and business leaders can prepare in advance.
