The National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education was created on October 23, 2014 at Northeastern University. It guides users through emergency response planning in the event of a fictitious disease outbreak on a college campus. The exercise is designed to increase understanding of emergency planning, preparedness, and resilience best practices specific to the academic community and international students.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) launched the Tech Sector program in 2013, creating a framework for voluntary technology support to state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments after a presidentially declared disaster.
This document provides an overview for establishing a Regional Business Emergency Operations Center (RBEOC) to better incorporate our Private Sector Stakeholders in FEMA Region III to improve two-way communication and real-time situational awareness outside the normal visibility of emergency management officials.
The Regional Business Emergency Operations Center (RBEOC) has been designed by Region III of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to sychnronize information sharing, collaboration, and communication between public and private sector stakeholders regarding emergency management matters. The RBEOC supports Emergency Support Function (ESF) #15, of the National Response Framework (NRF). FEMA is committed to a discrimination-free public and private sector disaster coordination process and expects private stakeholders to comply with federal laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability by recipients of federal funds.
This membership agreement includes the terms and conditions for participation in the RBEOC. Any questions should be directed to Melissa Wiehenstroer at Melissa.Wiehenstroer@fema.dhs.gov.
