If you own a business, it is crucial to have a disaster plan in place! The Corporate & Community Education Department of Black River Technical College is offering Disaster Preparedness for Small Businesses, conducted by the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC). This seminar will provide you with the background information and basic planning tools to increase the survivability of your business. Learn about local hazards, how to prepare for future disasters, and most importantly, what assistance will be available following a major disaster.
