According to a Hartford Financial Services study, 40 percent of businesses go out of business after disaster strikes if they don’t have a disaster plan.

Join the Everett Area Chamber of Commerce from noon to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 19, to see in action how small- and medium-sized businesses can reveal vulnerabilities and explore alternatives in order to answer them. Learn how you can prepare your own critical information and emergency plans.

Attend a free brown bag lunch hosted by the Everett Area Chamber and presented by Mike Geertsen of Depiction Inc. The seminar will be held at the Chamber of Commerce, 2000 Hewitt Ave., Suite 205. Please bring your own lunch and beverage.
