Being prepared is important for businesses and may become crucial if you want to stay in business after a serious emergency or disaster.

Please visit our Business Continuity and Disaster Preparedness page for more details.

IMPORTANT: Any organization or business that uses, manufactures, stores, or transports hazardous materials is required to have procedures for safe handling of these materials as well as emergency response procedures. In addition, if you use or generate hazardous chemicals above certain quantities, you are required to report to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). This group focuses on hazards assessment and mitigation for our area.

Please contact Greater Spokane Emergency Management if you have specific questions about hazard mitigation and/or business preparedness.
