Businesses Asked to Call Agency of Commerce to Report Damage

From Mark Bosma, Public Information Officer, Vermont Emergency Management

Businesses that have suffered damage in this week’s storms should call the Agency of Commerce disaster hotline at 802-828-3211 to report the damage.

 Businesses could become eligible for disaster assistance from the Small Business Administration for storm damage, including loss of revenue due to the storm.  Businesses should start to clean up now, making sure to take plenty of pictures and account for loss of revenue in order to eventually apply for assistance.

The first step in the recovery process is reporting damage to the Agency of Commerce at 802-828-3211.
