Natural disaster workshops to prepare small business operators

Small business operators can learn how to prepare for natural disasters at a series of free workshops being presented across the Murraylands next week.

Rural Business Support will offer workshops at Meningie and Tailem Bend on Wednesday and Karoonda and Murray Bridge on Thursday.

Participants will learn how to identify their critical infrastructure, find out how their business might be affected in several scenarios and plan actions they could take to reduce risk.

Each will also receive a half-hour consultation by telephone at a later date.

The workshops were jointly funded by the state and federal governments and are open to representatives of businesses with 20 or fewer employees.
