The British Columbia Economic Development Association (BCEDA) has launched a webpage to help businesses and individuals access support resources following the devastating wildfires impacting Lytton and several other areas in BC. Among the resources is a list of the Top 10 Steps to Prepare Your Business for Evacuation.
Now is a great time to review your business’s evacuation plan, or create your plan if you do not already have one. The BCEDA Top 10 list provides guidance to refresh or build your plan, including considerations for staff communication, insurance, and electronic information backup.
Additional BCEDA wildfire resources can be found on their website – click here. Also, Emergency Info BC provides resources for businesses looking to create an emergency plan. Click here and scroll to the section titled “Prepare Your Small Business” for a guide and fill-in-the-blanks plan template.
