Emergency Preparedness


LACEY, WA, October 28, 2016: Business owners and managers are invited to attend a Business Resiliency Workshop on Tuesday, November 1, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Thurston Economic Development Council (EDC) Center for Business and Innovation, 4220 6th Avenue SE in Lacey. Expert speakers will be on hand to discuss methods and resources for rapid economic recovery from natural or man-made disasters.

“With thoughtful planning, businesses can become more economically resilient to both small and large disasters,” said George Smith, Economic Development Coordinator for the City of Lacey. “The longer a business stays closed after a disaster, the more likely the business will never reopen. Whether it’s a vehicle hitting a storefront or disruption caused by a major earthquake, the key to recovery is preparation.”

The workshop is a free event cosponsored by the City of Lacey, EDC, and the Lacey South Sound Chamber of Commerce. Attendees will learn how to use local and federal resources to become more resilient. Space is limited. Register at
