AgilitySBA webinar Protect biz during hurricane
WASHINGTON (5/17/12)--A global climate expert from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will share the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season forecast during a free webinar at 2 p.m. ET on May 29 hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Agility Recovery. 

Agility Recovery is a CUNA Strategic Services provider. After the weather discussion, Agility will present disaster preparedness tips.

Dr. Gerry Bell has been the lead scientist of NOAA's Long-Range Hurricane Outlook Team since 1998.  He was instrumental in developing NOAA's Atlantic and East Pacific hurricane activity outlook, and has conducted weather analysis on CNN, FOX News, The Weather Channel and other news outlets.

Hurricane Season begins June 1. Last year's hurricane season was busy and costly, with damages from Hurricane Irene alone totaling $18.7 billion, according to the National Hurricane Center. 

The SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies through its "PrepareMyBusiness" website. Use the link to access past webinars and additional preparedness tips.

The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes.
