Emergency Preparedness

Following a disaster, it is anything but ‘business as usual’ for you, your employees and customers. The faster you can return your business to some level of normal operations, the quicker you can restore your income, jobs and the goods and services you supply to your customers.

In partnership with 16 other small business-focused organizations, and funded by the Small Business Administration (SBA), the CTSBDC has established the PrepareCT program to help Connecticut’s small business community prepare for and minimize the impact of disruptions and disasters, and take precise steps to ensure their continued business survival and well-being.

PrepareCT will be available online and has in-persons workshops coming soon. Please check back for more details.
