EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AND BUSINESS RECOVERY PROGRAM
SCCGP received a grant from the State of California and the grant is dedicated to “provide one-on-one, confidential consulting and training to help small businesses and entrepreneurs start, expand, facilitate investment and create jobs in California.” SCCGP has a long history of supporting the growth of small businesses but felt the topic of Emergency Preparedness and Business Recovery, especially in the State of California should be a priority in all small business plans. In reviewing statistical data on the inability of small businesses to withstand a disaster this ignited the passion within SCCGP to create a program that moved this topic to the forefront of conversations and the training the provide to their clients.
The creation of the Emergency Preparedness and Business Recovery Program was born with a mission to provide information and resources needed for Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity. This program is not limited in providing services to any one industry, any type of small business may apply. Another unique advantage of the Emergency Preparedness and Business Recovery Program is the introduction of contracting resources such as The Army Corps of Engineers, so small business can understand how to obtain emergency contracts that assist in disaster recovery. As natural disasters are imminent in California so is the aspect of recovery and with our program it provides an opportunity for businesses to prepare for both.
The Mission of the SCCGP Emergency Preparedness Team is to bring awareness and education to small business regarding the threats of disasters, the resources to survive them and the tools to overcome them.
The Value Proposition of SCCGP Emergency Preparedness Team is to Partner with Disaster Recovery Agencies, Resource Partners and Contracting Officers building awareness in the Small Business Community in emergency preparation and disaster response
The Vision of the SCCGP Emergency Preparedness team is to build Resilient Communities by building Resilient Businesses that prepare themselves pre-disaster so they can support the recovery efforts in the community post- disaster.
