WASHINGTON, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Recent attacks in office buildings and other public places by assailants armed with deadly weapons have heightened the necessity for an increased focus on security as a vital aspect of business continuity.
A crisis unfolding at or near your workplace could put your staff, customers and passersby in danger. And there are many scenarios to consider as reminders of your vulnerability to physical threats. But with careful planning and well-orchestrated drills, your office can be prepared for emergencies by knowing where and how to take shelter inside your building or evacuate efficiently, quickly, and safely.
Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration Wednesday, August 10, for a live online discussion on how to develop both shelter-in place and evacuation plans. Tips will also be shared on how to conduct drills that will protect the safety of your staff, clients, and the community where you do business.
