Why Disaster Management Is Very Crucial For Any Organization
There are lots of disasters that affects our business endeavors and our lives in general, and some are very much inevitable despite our efforts, and the most affected ones of these disasters are usually the smaller businesses. Unfortunately, the small businesses are usually the ones that are not very much prepared with these kinds of trials because of the lack of contingency plan, making them more vulnerable when all of these disasters try to conquer them.
Hurricane Irma’s Impact to the people
Hurricane Irma was one of the worst hurricanes that had ever stepped on this earth in the past few years and in the past century. There were are least seventy or more people who have vanished from the face of the earth because of the hurricane’s horror, and the country had then tried to move up to the economy back then since the Goldman Sachs had basically lost their GDP growth after everything happened. The impact of hurricane Irma was so strong that there have been some small businesses struggling to come past what has been done to them with regards to their resources and their people, making the whole tragedy a sad story for these small businesses.
For those businesses that have been unfortunate enough to be directly hit by this tremendous hurricane had also suffered a lot of floods, some structural damages on them, and some problems when it comes to electricity. Hurricane Irma was one of those really destructive hurricanes, to the point where even the ones that were not directly hit by it still had to suffer some problems almost the same as those it was intended to hit.
Some emergency loans we could make use of
There have been emergency loans being offered here and there, like those ones from the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program, that has somehow helped those who are in need of money after the damage, but apparently, these loans could never make up for the lost revenue that has been done because of the tragedy.
There are also some funding that the federal government has made for the people to have some ways in order to survive despite the happenings. The small businesses also received help from the US Small Business Administration through the means of being given access to different economic loans and emergency loans that they could use in order to let their shattered business live again and survive. Every business that has ever been shattered and affected greatly by this tremendous hurricane can have their chance of accessing and being granted a loan if they make it possible to apply on or before the date of November nine.
