Hurricane Preparedness Workshops

Hurricane Preparedness Workshops

Three hurricane preparedness workshops for business owners will be offered in Lake Charles, Cameron and Jennings in June by the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at McNeese State University.

Presentations at these workshops will offer information about preparing for business interruption during a hurricane. Discussion will include assistance programs to protect the physical structures of a business, support services available during a storm and how a continuity plan can help protect businesses and get their doors open soon after the storm passes.

Those interested can attend one of these workshop sessions:

  • Monday, June 13-8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Chamber Southwest Louisiana building in downtown Lake Charles
  • Monday, June 13-2-5 p.m. at the library at 501 Marshall St. in Cameron
  • Tuesday, June 14-8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Conference Centre in Jennings
