LEAD Brevard's Leadership Brevard Class of 2019 Leadership Action Project
Brevard County Emergency Management uses the Emergency Support Function (ESF) model as the primary mechanism for organizing preparedness for, response to, and recovery from the various threats and hazards that my affect our community. The purpose of ESF-18 (Business & Industry) is to coordinate actions that will provide assistance to the needs of business, industry and economic stabilization, and enhance the community’s ability to restore business operations as quickly as possible. This project will create a coalition of business networks, develop connectivity among those networks and the Emergency Management department, and provide a conduit for information-sharing in both daily and emergency situations.
