The City of Austin Small Business Program is committed to providing disaster preparedness and disaster recovery resources to the small business community. We have created this resource site to aid and assist businesses that have been affected by economic and natural disasters. This site is by no means comprehensive; however, the information contained may meet the immediate needs of your business during your time of preparation and recovery.
Nearly 50% of small businesses never recover from a disaster. By taking small steps to create a preparedness plan, Austin small businesses can be ready for an event that severely disrupts operations, such as extended power outages, pandemics or natural disasters. Read more about the small business preparedness campaign launched by the City of Austin.
Disaster Ready Austin is a collaborative initiative to educate and empower residents to be prepared for emergencies and disaster. This vision is a unified and consistent “whole community” approach to disaster preparedness education in the City of Austin.
