Workbook Cover FINAL REDONE for WEB 12_09_2014 

The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce recently had a special event where attendees learned how to protect their businesses so that when a disasterous event occurred the business could stay open and operational, even if it was from a temporary location.

A disasterous event could be as simple as a burst pipe flooding the building and damaging computers, paper records and inventory. Here in earthquake country, a disaster to a business can be as bad as total destruction of the building, equipment, computers, office furniture and business records.

Click on the links below to download individual forms or the entire Workbook. All forms are fillable PDFs from the event Workbook. Protect your business' operational capacity so you can continue to do business, uninterrupted in our community. Download the entire Save Your Business From Disaster Workbook with fillable PDFS from our Home page.
