MADISON, Wis. (8/31/10)--As part of National Preparedness Month, Agility Recovery Solutions, a CUNA Strategic Services provider, will host free educational webinars throughout September, with the first one scheduled for Wednesday. "America's businesses form the backbone of our economy. Small businesses alone account for more than 99% of all employer firms and provide nearly 45% of the nation's payroll," said Agility President/CEO Bob Boyd. "Yet, these businesses are the ones who have traditionally been unprepared with regards to an executable business continuity plan," he added. The first webinar, "Business preparedness: Can You Go Alone for 72 Hours?" will be at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT Wednesday. R. David Paulison, former administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), will share how and why businesses need to take steps to become self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours following any interruption.
