Small business disaster hub - how to use these resources video transcript

Watch the video Small business disaster hub – How to use these resources to learn about the resources available and how to use them to help your business prevent, prepare, respond and recover from a disaster.

Disasters can strike at any time, sometimes with no warning and often with devastating consequences for small businesses and communities.

Most small businesses have limited time or resources to deal with a disaster.

That's why getting the right information to help you better prevent, prepare, respond, recover and communicate all in one place is so important.

The Small business disaster hub makes it faster and easier to find what you're looking for.

The hub is an online website and app with information tailored to specific business sectors and a range of disasters from workplace emergencies and natural disasters to IT threats.

It covers all small businesses, primary producers, tourism and hospitality operators, retailers, transport and logistics and construction businesses.

The hub sits on the Business Queensland website with access to downloadable resources that you can print and keep handy if you lose power.

Also, when the internet is down, the hub's free app allows you to still access information. When you're back online the app can also send notifications when disaster grants are open.

To use the hub, choose which industry best applies to you, then select which disaster you want to prepare for, respond to or recover from.

The disaster hub includes:

  • top 10 'to do' tips and simplified checklists
  • communication messaging
  • 'how to' videos
  • links to financial assistance.

So, if you're a small business owner, don't wait for the next disaster. Visit Business Queensland to see the Small business disaster hub or download the app now.
