Why Disaster Management Is Very Crucial For Any Organization
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
Apparently, the hurricane Irma has damaged a lot of lives, from residential houses to businesses here and there. More than at least seventy people has lost their lives from the hurricane and the economy of the country has been struggling ever since the disaster happened, making the Goldman Sachs slash their own GDP growth. The impact of hurricane Irma was so strong that there have been some small businesses struggling to come past what has been done to them with regards to their resources and their people, making the whole tragedy a sad story for these small businesses.
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.
Acquiring of emergency loans
Helpful people have also created some ways on how the ones affected can still continue their lives and live normally despite what has happened, like those emergency loans they had from a program based in Florida, but the thing is these loans were not enough to resurrect all of the revenue that was lost from the disastrous hurricane.
The federal government has also extended its hand to help those in need by creating some funding for the people who were greatly affected by the storm. The small businesses also received help from the US Small Business Administration through the means of being given access to different economic loans and emergency loans that they could use in order to let their shattered business live again and survive. 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.
