The FEMA National Business Emergency Operations Center (NBEOC) is activated as part of the Interagency Crisis Action Task Force, supporting the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Lead Federal Agency for our nation’s response to COVID-19.

The Crisis Action Task Force and NBEOC are operating daily (M-Fri) from 0800-1700 hrs. (EST). 

 Emergency Support Function #14 – Cross Sector Business & Infrastructure is also activated at the national level with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) coordinating.

Key Update

The NBEOC Operations Dashboard is active and being used to post-incident updates:

  •  Initial ESF 14 Business and Industry Cross-Sector Coordination Calls are planned for March 5, 2020 from 1500-1600 hrs. EDT.  Expect recurring meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the coming weeks via a separate calendar invite.
