Unlike other natural disasters, earthquakes occur without warning and cannot be predicted. Most of the United States is at some risk for earthquakes, not just the West Coast, so it is important that you understand your risk, develop preparedness and mitigation plans, and take action.

The Ready Business QuakeSmart Program and the Preparedness and Mitigation Project Plan allows users to take action to protect employees, protect customers, and help ensure business continuity as well.

Once completed the Ready Business Program will provide you with the tools to plan, take action, and become a Ready Business by addressing preparedness and mitigation for your Staff, Space, Systems, Structure, and Service. And you will also have the opportunity to apply for recognition as a member of the Ready Business Community.
