This toolkit and guide created by the Calgary Chamber for the World Chambers Federation (WCF) is meant to assist any chamber with two things: how to be more prepared themselves; and, how to deploy programs that will be of benefit to their members or general business community. It details a variety of governance, communication, and activities that are recommended best practices in terms of being able to best support the recovery of a business community to disaster or emergency. See more about Calgary's disaster recovery work and additional toolkits on the Disaster Preparedness & Recovery Chamberpedia page.
