Preparedness Resources for Business
Getting back to business after a disaster depends on preparedness planning done today. Small business owners invest a tremendous amount of time, money and resources to make their ventures successful.

For small business owners, being prepared can mean staying in business following a disaster.
Private Sector Integration Program (PSIP)
The Maryland Department of Emergency Management (MDEM) is committed to incorporating the private sector into the emergency management framework to provide a voice to the business community during emergencies and increase information sharing between the private and public sectors. MDEM has built the Private Sector Integration Program (PSIP) to effectuate this goal. The PSIP will include a Business Operations Center (BOC) housed within the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) to better facilitate communication, situational awareness, and information sharing.
We would like to invite your organization to help us build and refine our private sector integration program:
