Disaster planning and recovery
Many communities seem prepared for snow and ice, but not so much for other types of disaster until problems occur.

The article links to disaster preparedness/recovery articles that are beneficial to clients and small businesses. The URL is http://missouribusiness.net/2014/07/business-hurt-by-storms/.
