No one wants to think of it happening, but having a crisis plan in place can mitigate emergency situations.  On Thursday, July 18, 11:30 am at the Augusta Metro Chamber office, join Nutrien with presenter Paul Duckworth to learn more about preparing the best plan for the worst scenario at the Chamber’s Third Thursday Business Builder.

Is your staff trained on policy or know who to call in security situations?  Do you have a contact plan for when a natural disaster strikes?  Do you and your team know what to do in an active shooter situation?  Are you prepared with a backup of your data and server in the case of flooding or outage?  The afternoon’s presentation with Paul Duckworth, Senior Advisor, Security & Emergency Preparedness at Nutrien, will discuss safety measures and focus on creating or updating a crisis management plan for your business to be prepared for the unpredictable.
