The National Business Emergency Operations Center (NBEOC) is FEMA's virtual clearing house to enhance information sharing between private industry partners and public agencies — including FEMA — before, during, and after disasters.
When there is an active disaster response, NBEOC members have unique lines of communication into FEMA's National Response Coordination Center, activated Regional Response Coordination Centers, and the broader network of emergency management operations, including state and federal partners.
The NBEOC allows members to share knowledge from the field impacting operating status and recovery challenges. It also provides data to help with business continuity decisions, and provides integration into disaster planning, training and exercises.
