Resilience in a Box

Developed in partnership with The UPS Foundation, Resilience in a Box is based on best practices and designed to educate business leaders on disaster preparedness and business resilience.

Small businesses are both highly vulnerable and can be without adequate resources to focus on preparedness actions. Having a disaster plan can mean the difference between your business recovering after a disaster or closing forever. Resilience in a Box educates businesses on how to prepare for disasters of all kinds, while building in flexibility to handle potential business interruptions.
