You think it will never happen to your business. Until it does. Are you ready?

The frequency and severity of natural disasters is increasing in Australia, meaning that there will be more floods, more storms, more bush fires and more heat waves. For businesses, it’s not just about the immediate damage but the flow-on impacts such as power outages and transport and communication interruptions. Following a disaster, it can take months to get your business back up and running.

This free toolkit has been developed by the NSW Department of Industry, the NSW Small Business Commissioner and the NSW Office of the Emergency Management to help you get your business ready for disasters in five simple steps.

Get Ready Business provides easy-to-use resources for download, to help you prepare for disasters:
