How FEMA Helps Businesses & Communities Navigate Disasters

FEMA has supported businesses and communities before, during, and after disasters for more than 40 years. It provides emergency assistance that includes ongoing coordination, integration, planning, and training exercises to improve organizational resilience.

Robert Glenn, Director, Office of Business, Industry, and Infrastructure Integration at FEMA, explains how businesses can receive disaster assistance, help their communities, and better prepare for emergencies.

We discuss:

  • How a disaster gets declared
  • The resources and services FEMA provides
  • How businesses can apply for disaster assistance
  • Important lessons for preparedness and recovery
