During a large-scale disaster, the demand for resources will be great and there simply will not be enough resources for everyone who needs it. The Riverside County Business Emergency Operations Center (BEOC) assists emergency managers by connecting resources and building relationships within public and private sectors.
The mission of the BEOC is to collaboratively integrate the business and government sectors in all phases of emergency management, expand resource capability through situational awareness, and strengthen the whole community.
By offering your core services, your company makes a mark on the local community. Historically following disasters, businesses have been the backbone of helping communities recover faster.
In a catastrophic event, your business has the opportunity to be a part of the bigger picture. Make your efforts go farther by integrating into a network of Riverside County businesses mobilizing resources for the areas of greatest need.
Who can become a partner?
Partnership is open to all Riverside County businesses, from large, world-wide corporations to local, family-owned businesses. A BEOC Partner Agreement must be completed.
What will be required of me?
There is a small time commitment required for training and exercises. These commitments include completing FEMA-approved training, attending quarterly meetings, and participating in annual exercises. In a disaster, business partners serve in either a physical or virtual BEOC.
