Business Network of Emergency Resources, Inc. (BNET)
Business Network of Emergency Resources, Inc. (BNET) with operations headquartered in Fulton, NY, is a 501(c)3, New York State not-for-profit chartered organization dedicated to establishing joint emergency and crisis management solutions through partnerships between the public and private sectors.
Since 1999, BNET has pioneered the way to providing emergency access credentialing through its development of the Corporate Emergency Access System ("CEAS"). A new program that facilitates rapid business recovery, local economic stability, and infrastructure resiliency, CEAS provides a pre-event credentialing system for critical employee re-entry in partnership with local governments.
Most large corporations and smaller, proactive businesses have disaster recovery and emergency response plans in place. However, even the most sophisticated corporate planners can do little during a disaster event or local emergency when public safety officials deny access to their work sites. BNET was established to help create the awareness and partnerships necessary to overcome such obstacles and promote the importance of business continuity to the economic recovery of a region.
"The CEAS Program makes it easier for businesses to recover when a major disaster occurs."
- Commissioner Joseph F. Bruno, New York City Office of Emergency Management

To achieve its mission, BNET seeks to partner with both public sector and private sector organizations with goal of improving community resiliency of through the preservation of businesses following a disaster. Recognizing the vital role that private sector businesses play in disaster recovery, BNET seeks to help communities overcome the obstacles to recovery through its critical employee credentialing program.
