The Fairfax County BEOC
Business Emergency Operations Council
September is National Preparedness Month
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fairfax County BEOC has officially stood up a COVID-19 resources page which can be accessed at the top of this page. If you have any questions about becoming a council member please send an email to COVID19@FFXBEOC.org. Thank you.
We are a consortium of businesses who are working with Fairfax County Government officials and the Office of Emergency Management to enable focused and timely communications and to foster a greater understanding of what it means to be a resilient business in Fairfax County.
The BEOC was created to enable better coordination and collaboration between businesses, with a presence in Fairfax County, and local government officials when preparing for, responding to, and recovering from, disasters or other events with the potential to impact normal operations.
Participation in the BEOC is completely voluntary and open to members of the private sector, including large and small businesses, trade associations, universities, think-tanks, and non-profits. During response activities, BEOC members are linked into Fairfax County's Emergency Operations Center.
What We Do
The BEOC works with Fairfax County on short-term and long-term goals for county preparedness.
Alert and Notification
The county will alert the BEOC if there is a disruption that requires a response from or action by the BEOC membership.
Each member of the organization will utilize information from the county in order to activate their own response plan.
The county will coordinate with the council for assistance in post-incident activities. The goal of every business is to prepare for long-term economic recovery.
