While 88 percent of small businesses agree that they need a business- continuity plan, only 39 percent actually have one, according to a new Ad Council survey. Here are three resources to help plan for a workplace emergency and educate your employees:

1. OSHA’s 20-page booklet, How to Plan for Workplace Emergencies and Evacuation. Go to www.osha.gov/Publications/osha3088.pdf.

2. The Department of Homeland Security offers free posters on physical security and computer security. Go to www.us-cert.gov/reading_room/distributable.html.

3. Download posters, brochures and checklists that help people and businesses prepare at www.ready.gov.
