Ready Business Mentoring Initiative includes the Ready Business Mentoring Guides which are designed to teach business owners and managers about affordable ways to better protect their businesses. In addition, the Ready Campaign collaborated with the Education Disaster Extension Network (EDEN) to create presentation materials to support the Ready Business Mentoring Guides.
These materials assist business and community leaders in hosting and delivering business preparedness workshops and training sessions. These sessions and the Ready Business Mentoring Guides outline how businesses can plan to stay in business; talk to employees; and protect assets.

**The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Advertising Council launched the Ready Business Campaign in September 2004. This extension of the successful Ready Campaign, designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies, focuses specifically on business preparedness. Ready Business helps owners and managers of small- and medium-sized businesses prepare their employees, operations and assets in the event of an emergency.
Disasters, by their very nature, are highly unpredictable and it is impossible to fully anticipate every situation and loss that may occur should one strike. Similarly, every business faces unique risks and challenges, and plans and techniques that work well for one business may not work for another. Even so, Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) and the Business Network of Emergency Resources (BNET Inc.) believe that thorough, well-considered planning can reduce the risks any business might face and the losses it might suffer should a disaster strike. For that reason, we work to assemble experience and materials to assist business in developing customized disaster preparation and recovery plans.
Please remember that no plan can be perfect. However, we believe that such preparartion can reduce your risks and position your business to better resist the devastating ramifications of a business interruption. We hope this toolkit will help facilitate that process.
