HAMPTON — What measures can you take to protect your business and educate your employees from severe weather? What do more frequent storm events and severe flooding mean for our seacoast business community? These are important questions that the Severe Weather and Business Planning workshop can help you answer! The Green Alliance is co-sponsoring this workshop with NH Businesses for Social Responsibility along with UNH.  

Up to 40 percent of businesses that are impacted by a natural disaster never reopen. With New England’s harsh ever-changing weather conditions it is especially important for the businesses in this region to be prepared. At this workshop attendees will learn Ready Rating approaches to protect property, road access and essential services during severe weather events. The ReadyRating session will be led by Ian Dyar the Regional Disaster and Program Officer for the American Red Cross in the NH region.  There will be presentations and discussions about severe weather to help you make a plan to protect your business.

This workshop will take place on June 17th at the Oceanfront Pavilion at Hampton Beach and includes a continental breakfast.  This is a free event and registration is required. You can register for this workshop by clicking here.
