Emergency Preparedness & Business Recovery in Cambridge

MAPC and the City of Cambridge Community Development Department (CDD) partnered in February 2015 to develop post-emergency business continuity and emergency preparedness strategies for small businesses in Cambridge.

To help businesses plan for emergency circumstances, MAPC and the Cambridge CDD held a series of five planning workshops for small business owners. The workshops introduced the steps business owners can take to prepare for an emergency and recover quickly after one occurs. These workshops also served to launch the Cambridge CDD Business Emergency Preparedness Website to the public. This site is a resource for businesses that showcases MAPC’s best practice research on small business emergency preparedness efforts nationwide.

Grant Contracts Coordinator, Nicholas Kraft, wrote about this project on the MAPC blog, Planning 101. The article is available here.
