Emergency Preparedness For Business

Do1Thing has developed a 12 month program to help you get your business ready by taking a small step each month. Unlike our usual program, it is important that businesses start at month one, and go in order as each month builds on the last month. We highly encourage businesses to take advantage of this program that we have spent a long time on.
