What is an economic shock? An economic shock may be a natural disaster (e.g. fire, earthquake, or extreme weather) or a man-made disaster such as a utility disruption. It may even be a purely economic event such as the closure of a large business.
The following resources were created to encourage Mid-Columbia region businesses to prepare in advance and to be ready to respond if an economic shock or event occurs. Please note that the attached guides are intended to be a starting point for resources during a disaster, but that all resources listed may not apply during every disaster.
MCEDD also completed a report in 2019 to assess effective response strategies, identify areas for improvement, and outline opportunities to enhance tools and services that will support the resiliency of the region. Read the report here.
