Nov 24, 2015, 17:02 ET from U.S. Small Business Administration

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It may be a mistake to believe your insurance policy will cover all of your business continuity needs in the event of a major disaster.  Another big error: not having a basic emergency plan that will keep your clients and employees safe when a crisis occurs.

Businesses everywhere are now operating on limited resources. Yet the survival of your company rests—particularly when faced with a disaster—on whether or not you have a solid plan in place that will enable you to protect your assets, and allow your organization to rebound quickly.

On Tuesday, Dec. 8, Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration will host a webinar focusing on the top ten most common mistakes business owners make when dealing with a crisis.

We'll look at recent small business recoveries, ranging from hurricanes and tornadoes to building fires and plumbing leaks, and best practices that will help you lead your organization and successfully manage any disaster.

SBA has partnered with Agility Recovery to offer business continuity strategies through the "PrepareMyBusiness" website.  Visit  to access past webinars and for disaster preparedness checklists.
