FEMA’s National Business Emergency Operations Center (NBEOC) coordinates and enhances information-sharing among government partners and business, industry, and infrastructure organizations — before, during, and after disasters.
The NBEOC has no authority to enter into contracts or conduct procurement on behalf of FEMA or the federal government.
What We Do
- Engage critical business, industry, and infrastructure organizations to support disaster response and recovery operations.
- Support state, local, tribal, and territorial governments throughout the disaster lifecycle by connecting them to their FEMA regional office and the NBEOC’s national network of business and industry organizations.
- Understand business and industry operating status throughout the disaster lifecycle and support economic and supply chain resilience.
- Operationalize business and industry organizations to support community lifeline stabilization and supply chain resilience, in partnership with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) when Emergency Support Function (ESF) #14 (Cross-Sector Business and Infrastructure) is activated.

NBEOC Service Desk: The service desk provides a single customer portal so NBEOC members can communicate, track information meeting requests and submit offers of support.
Training: The FEMA National Preparedness training and education page provides an overview of emergency management training opportunities available at the Emergency Management Institute, Center for Domestic Preparedness and the National Training and Education Division.
Business Preparedness: Ready Business provides tools and resources for businesses to prepare in advance for disaster.
