LYONS, NEBRASKA – Business owners interested in enhancing their knowledge of preparing for an emergency response are invited to “Catastrophe and Emergency Readiness,” organized by the Center for Rural Affairs’ Rural Enterprise Assistance Project.

This free, two-part online course will occur on Tuesday, July 7, and Thursday, July 9, from 9 to 11 a.m.

“This class will teach people how to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to their business," said Jessica Campos, Center for Rural Affairs’ Women’s Business Center director. “People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan. Learning to appropriately plan for any obstacle is crucial for the success and survival of any business.”

Andres Gamboa will instruct the course. Registration is due by July 3; contact Jessica Campos at or 402.870.1521; or Raul Arcos-Hawkins at 308.833.0260 or
