Emergency Preparedness for North Country Businesses

As part of North Country Council's new grant-funded program to help businesses be better prepared for disasters, and so be more resilient with reduced recovery times, the Council is conducting a survey of business preparedness. Businesses will be contacted by email and US mail. Responses will be anonymous. If you are a business owner/manager and do not receive a copy of the survey, contact Michelle Moren-Grey at or 603-444-6303 x 14. Click here for more information on the project.
