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. Unfortunately, the small businesses are usually the ones that are not very much prepared with these kinds of trials because of the lack of contingency plan, making them more vulnerable when all of these disasters try to conquer them.
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. There were are least seventy or more people who have vanished from the face of the earth because of the hurricane’s horror, and the country had then tried to move up to the economy back then since the Goldman Sachs had basically lost their GDP growth after everything happened. 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.
A lot of small businesses and even some bigger ones who have been hit directly by this intense hurricane had unfortunately suffered through some floods, severe structural damages, and constant power outages that made it almost impossible for them to rise again. The hurricane has basically not only made those people and businesses it directly hit to suffer, but it has also affected those others that were not even brought about by its power, making it a really scary and severe hurricane for the people.
Acquiring of emergency loans
Some really concerned citizens have also made programs in order to help those folks that have suffered from the damages of the hurricane, and have made loan programs like those in Florida to make sure that everyone gets the help that they need, but unfortunately, these were not enough to get back what was lost from them because of the incident.
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. Some of the businesses that were greatly devastated from Hurricane Irma had been given access to emergency loans and some economic loans from the US Small Business Administration. Every business that has ever been shattered and affected greatly by this tremendous hurricane can have their chance of accessing and being granted a loan if they make it possible to apply on or before the date of November nine.
