The Business Recovery program is a public-private collaboration to ensure private sector emergency preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.
The goal of this program is to minimize the number of businesses, especially small and medium sized, that fail to reopen due to a lack of accurate and actionable information, during and following an emergency or disaster event. This will be accomplished through a partnership with the private sector to encourage, where necessary, private sector emergency preparedness and mitigation.
Additionally, the exchange of timely information between the private and public sectors, as illustrated in the diagram below, will facilitate emergency management response and recovery and enable businesses to make appropriate decisions to sustain continuity of operations.
This chart illustrates the type of information shared and how it flows between the public and private sectors during an emergency or disaster event. The information is shared primarily through the Business Continuity Information Network (BCIN), an internet application developed by Florida International University, which provides a secure platform for the government and the private sector to communicate.
The Miami-Dade County 311 Contact Center will be another conduit for information exchange. County emergency management coordinators will also use email, especially during the pre-event period prior to activating BCIN, to communicate with the private sector.
