The full version:

Crises will happen—real, potentially business-destroying crises. For example, in recent times we’ve had floods, a pandemic, and world-wide supply chain disruptions, just to name a few of the big ones. Then there are more localized crises such as building fires, equipment failure, and system hacks.

A crisis plan can help weather these unpredictable events, and it doesn’t have to be expensive to prepare. Nowadays you can find tools and templates to help small businesses develop a crisis plan. It’s going to require though that you invest some time in developing a plan, but even if you never have to use it, it will at least give you peace of mind. And if someday you do have to use it, you’ll be glad that you made the investment.

You have some homework to do.
