Free Resilience Toolkit Program for Snowy Valleys Businesses
Published on 15 September 2021
Local businesses across the Snowy Valleys will now have access to a new online resilience toolkit to help them prepare for future disruptions and disasters.
The online toolkit is a simple process, designed to help business owners and communities build disaster resilience one small step at a time.
The free program will help all businesses in the region help themselves, by getting them to think seriously about the future, develop their contingency plans for all types of disasters, and build support networks.
Snowy Valleys Council Mayor James Hayes said the opportunity for Snowy Valleys’ businesses to be able to access the toolkit was a win for the region.
“The most important thing local business can do to support their community is to stay open and operating,” said Cr Hayes.
“I encourage everyone to get involved and register for the program to develop their contingency plans for all types of disasters and build support networks.”
Thanks to a grant awarded through the joint-funded NSW and Commonwealth Government Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund (BCRRF) the Business Community Resilience Toolkit Program will be delivered to local businesses across 11 Local Government Areas.
The Business Community Resilience Toolkit Program is now open for registrations and the 26-part online toolkit program launches October 5, with fortnightly modules released until October 2022.
