SMALL BUSINESS DISASTER PREPAREDNESS SERIES

March 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

WORKING WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT: SMALL BUSINESS PROCUREMENT

THE SERIES

Hosted jointly by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the Small Business Disaster Preparedness Series gives America’s small business owners and representatives important
information about disaster preparedness, resiliency, and response. Each quarter features a new topic tailored for small businesses and provides opportunities to speak directly to experts about federal programs and resources available for your
business. Small businesses are the backbone of America’s economy, and are vital to restoring the health, security, and vibrancy of a community after a disaster.  Join us!

FEMA’s Office of Business, Industry, and Infrastructure Integration (OB3I) engages and coordinates with
business, industry, and government to understand and meet the critical needs of communities. Through
consistent situational awareness, data collection, and cross-sector communication, OB3I helps inform federal
emergency management decision-making so businesses can get back to business following a disaster. OB3I
operates the National Business Emergency Operations Center (NBEOC), FEMA’s virtual clearinghouse, to facilitate
information-sharing between government agencies and business, industry, and infrastructure organizations and
identify resource needs during disasters. To become an NBEOC member and gain access to resources for
business and industry, visit fema.gov/NBEOC.

SBA’s Office of Disaster Recovery and Resilience (ODRR) connects individuals, businesses, and private nonprofits with SBA disaster assistance programs to improve disaster recovery outcomes and economic resilience by
helping communities prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate against disasters of all types. For more
information about ODRR, visit sba.gov/ODRR.
