Prepare your business for emergencies

Learning how you can take practical steps to be prepared and build your business resilience for disasters will help minimise disruption and enable you to recover more quickly, but this can be an overwhelming process, especially if you don’t know where to start.

That's why Penrith City Council invites local Penrith businesses to join us and social enterprise, Resilient Ready, at a ‘What If Wednesday’ Business Breakfast on Wednesday, 22 November from 8.30am to 10:00am at the Western Parkland City Authority Office, Belmore Street Penrith.

The breakfast is designed to assist small to medium businesses in the Penrith region with risk of being impacted by flooding, storms and fire in learning how to best prepare for and build resilience to these natural disasters.

Penrith Mayor Todd Carney encouraged all businesses to register for the breakfast, especially with a hot summer on the horizon.

“Resilient Ready are national experts who have experience guiding businesses through disasters and driving risk reduction and resilience, from Lismore to Kangaroo Island to the Blue Mountains. They want to share their leading knowledge with Penrith businesses to help them prepare and build their resilience in case of disaster,” Cr Carney said.

“Penrith has experienced a range of natural disasters over the last few years, from floods to bushfires and a global pandemic — we want to help provide our local businesses with the resources and tools to help them get throughs similar crises in the future.”

The breakfast is free, but registration is essential to secure your spot. Register at
