Businesses offered free ‘disaster survival’ advice

Business | Press | News

Local businesses are being offered free advice on how to survive natural and other disasters at a half-day seminar being organised by Peterborough City Council’s emergency planning team in conjunction with the London Continuity Forum.

The seminar – entitled Business as Usual? – will be held at the National Centre for DeafBlindness at Cygnet Business Park, Hampton, Peterborough, on Thursday 15 February from 9 am to 2 pm. A light lunch is included.

City council emergency planning officer Victoria Bales said: “There are many potential threats to the stability of all businesses. They range from natural disasters such as flooding through to terrorist outrages. People may also find their businesses are threatened by power failures, emergency evacuation plans or widespread staff sickness.

“All commercial firms and even voluntary organisations need to ask how their operations would survive an emergency. This seminar will provide practical, expert advice on business continuity and resilience planning. It is part of the city council’s commitment to promoting economic resilience in the community.”

The programme will include guest speakers on business continuity, security and health matters, and an opportunity for attendees to discuss individual issues.

For more information and to book a place on this free seminar telephone 01733 452474 or email [email protected]k
