Episode 24: Are you ready for the next disaster?

Wildfire season is coming in much of Washington. Other parts of our state face earthquakes and tsunamis. And our friends elsewhere in the country face winter storms, tornadoes, flooding and more. It is hard to set time aside to get ready for something you don’t really know when or how it will come. In this episode, Nancy and Sarah give you three steps to put a nonprofit disaster plan in place. They tell you about a new disaster planning resource for nonprofits being launched at a conference at the end of April 2021. Disaster Planning for Nonprofits is a new, free resource available to nonprofits in Washington, sponsored by the Non Profit Insurance Program (NPIP). Click here to check it out.
