NSW Small Business Month urges: ‘Get Ready’ for stressors and disruptors

Warrumbungle Shire Council is encouraging local business owners to prepare for emergencies and disasters in five simple steps by downloading the free Get Ready Business toolkit from Resilience NSW as part of Small Business Month, October 2020. 

The theme for Small Business Month 2020 is ‘Futureproof your business’. This means being aware of potential stressors and disruptors and planning now for what to do when disaster strikes, said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor Councillor Ambrose Doolan. 

“In the wake of devasting drought and the global COVID-19 pandemic, we know this is the one of the toughest years many small businesses have faced,” Cr Doolan said.

“If this year has taught us anything, it’s the importance of being aware and prepared. Being prepared can improve recovery; it can mean the difference between your businesses re-opening after an event or remaining closed,” Cr Doolan said. 

“Preparing for disruption is simply good business. And the good news is that it’s never been easier. Get Ready Business has been specially designed to help NSW business owners prepare for emergencies and disasters in five simple steps. Download it this NSW Small Business Month from and ‘Futureproof your business’ now,” said Cr Doolan.
