Disaster ManagementFor Your Business
There are lots of disasters that affects our business endeavors and our lives in general, and some are very much inevitable despite our efforts, and the most affected ones of these disasters are usually the smaller businesses. These small businesses unfortunately lack all of the necessary means in order for them to be able to cope up to the changes that these disasters can bring to their operations and management, and some of them even lack some contingency plans.
How Hurricane Irma impacted the lives of the people
Unfortunately, the impact of hurricane Irma to the people affected was a really intense and severe one that had made others get over it after long periods of time. Many people have died from the disaster and the economy of the United States Of America has counted the cost since the Goldman Sachs had slashed its GDP growth through the hurricane’s tremendous hit. Because of the tragedy that this hurricane has brought to the country, the small businesses that were supposed to be running just smoothly now have to suffer a lot from the damages, and most of them will be struggling to move on from it.
For those businesses that have been unfortunate enough to be directly hit by this tremendous hurricane had also suffered a lot of floods, some structural damages on them, and some problems when it comes to electricity. Hurricane Irma was one of those really destructive hurricanes, to the point where even the ones that were not directly hit by it still had to suffer some problems almost the same as those it was intended to hit.
Some emergency loans we could make use of
There have been emergency loans being offered here and there, like those ones from the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program, that has somehow helped those who are in need of money after the damage, but apparently, these loans could never make up for the lost revenue that has been done because of the tragedy.
Fortunately, the federal government has also done its part of helping the victims of the incident, and has found ways on how the affected can still move on despite what has happened. The US Small Business Administration has also found ways on how they could extend their help to their fellow businessmen that had suffered severely and incurred many losses from the incident through loans. For those businesses that have incurred several damages from the terrifying hurricane and would want to start over again, they are given a privilege to apply for these different loans and be granted one or some if they adhere to apply before the ninth of November.
