Contact Us and News

FEMA Region 3 office, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania oversees federal emergency management for 7 Tribal Nations and the following states:

Regional Business Emergency Operations Center (RBEOC)

Staying connected to the right partners can make a big difference when you’re trying to keep your business operating after a disaster, or you want to prepare your employees and customers for an emergency. In 2015, FEMA Region III created the Regional Business Emergency Operations Center to formally enhance two-way communication and engagement with the private sector throughout the disaster lifecycle, including pre-disaster preparedness, disaster response, and post-disaster recovery. Membership in the RBEOC is virtual, with coordination provided by the FEMA Region III Private Sector Liaison. Participation is free, voluntary and open to all members of the private and public sectors. By becoming a member, you’ll join our network of trusted partners and will receive regular updates, event invitations, and preparedness resources from us.

What Happens During An RBEOC Activation

During activations, RBEOC members are invited to participate in daily calls to hear incident updates from Regional Response Coordination Center (RRCC)
leadership, Emergency Support Function (ESF) partners, and affected state partners. We also track members’ needs, capabilities, concerns and updates and share them within the RRCC and with appropriate partners.

What Events Do We Host?

Every year FEMA Region III hosts a Private Sector Readiness Day at
our office in Philadelphia. This event is an opportunity for businesses
within our region to come together with emergency managers to talk
through a disaster scenario, each of our priorities and concerns, and
opportunities to coordinate.

We also host Ready Business Workshops in communities across our region to educate businesses on hazards common to the area and the simple steps they can take to prepare their facilities, employees and customers for
an emergency.

Membership

Joining the RBEOC is free and easy. By becoming a member, you’ll join our network of trusted private sector partners and will ensure that you receive regular updates and event invitations from us. Just fill out the Membership Agreement and return to Melissa Wiehenstroer, FEMA Region III’s Private Sector Liaison at Melissa.Wiehenstroer@fema.dhs.gov.

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) is a national FEMA program that works with states, tribes, territories and local communities to evaluate and better understand their current flood risk, as well as the actions that can be taken to mitigate and become more resilient against future risk.

Es posible que FEMA necesite más información suya para continuar procesando su solicitud. Si usted tiene seguro y solicita asistencia federal, debe presentarle un reclamo a su compañía de seguros.
