Business Emergency Preparedness Survey Results
By Otago Civil Defence & Emergency Management Group | Posted: Friday August 16, 2019
Being prepared for an emergency should be a key part of all business planning. The Otago Chamber of Commerce is working with the Otago Civil Defence & Emergency Management Group to assess how well prepared businesses across the region are for dealing with an emergency situation.
Many thanks to the 78 businesses that responded to our survey. We had responses from a variety of businesses across the region, giving us a good snapshot of preparedness for Emergency Management in our Business Community and the impact that events are having already on our community.
Please take a look at the results attached below.
We have shared the full results of this survey with the Otago Civil Defence & Emergency Management Group and will be working alongside CDEM to ensure resources and support are in place to help businesses be better prepared for emergency situations. We will also be considering what might be needed to reduce the risk of business being exposed to an “event” in the first instance.
