Most small businesses rely on lenders to provide the capital they need to either open a business or to finance capital improvements. Without loans, many small business owners would be unable to realize their dreams of opening a business or expanding their operations.
Even though SBA does not loan money directly to small business owners, we play an important role for people who want to finance or grow their business.

The purpose of this guide is to assist all businesses within the City and County of Broomfield in preparing an All-Hazard Emergency Plan specific to their business establishment. In every business environment, some type of emergency is going to occur. These emergencies may cause death or industry to employees, disrupt operations, or even force companies to temporarily or permanently shut down.

It is estimated that 25% of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster. Identifying and planning for a variety of potential hazards can lessen their impact on your business, and may be key to the its overall continued success.

The Business All-Hazard Preparedness Guide will walk you through the process of developing formal emergency plans recommended by local officials. The type, size, and complexity of your business will determine the intricacy of your plan. Although the task of creating your plans may seem daunting at first, this guide provides information on how to develop your plan. It also provides recommendations by local first responders and industry peers in developing a customized plan which meets your business' needs and fits into the response plans of local first responders.
