Additional information on how small businesses, individuals and families can prepare for disasters is available at http://www.redcross.org or by contacting your local Red Cross chapter.

Survey Methodology

Macro International, Inc. conducted telephone surveys with 241 small businesses in June, 2007 to learn about how prepared they are for disasters, what specific steps they have taken, plan to take or have decided not to take to become prepared, and to gather information about tools and various resources that would assist them in preparing their business for a disaster. A random national sample of 101 small businesses has a margin of error of +/- 9.8% at a confidence level of 95%.

Minority owned businesses and businesses located in disaster prone areas were over sampled to understand specific needs and characteristics among these two groups to inform development of emergency preparedness materials and tools that encourage businesses to take action steps. For purposes of this study, the definition of a small business is fewer than 100 employees but also a minimum of seven-10 employees.

Almost 4 million people gave blood through the Red Cross, the largest supplier of blood and blood product
