Tampa Business Emergency Council Launched
TAMPA, FL, (October 15, 2018) — Chauncia Willis, City of Tampa Emergency Management Coordinator, announced the formation of the Tampa Business Emergency Council (TBEC). The mission of TBEC is to act as a liaison between the Tampa Bay business community and the City of Tampa Office of Emergency Management and Emergency Operations Center and to function as an advisory council.
TBEC has been developed through a collaborative effort of the City of Tampa Office of Emergency Management, The Greater Tampa Bay Association of Continuity Professionals, the Tampa Office of Growth Management and Development Services, and the Hillsborough County Office of Economic Development. Its development came in answer to a need for improved communication and information between the City of Tampa and the Tampa Bay area businesses during times of crisis.
The vision of TBEC is to ensure small, medium and large businesses are represented and connected to emergency support services prior to, during, and after a crisis in order to maintain a resilient Tampa Bay.
TBEC will represent the Tampa Bay business community within the Emergency Operations Center. It will provide a framework that is predictable and repeatable which will result in effective communication during times of disruption. It will also provide training, awareness, and preparedness campaigns during peacetime to ensure businesses understand what types of support are available and how to request them.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome TBEC as an established partner of Tampa’s EOC. Our business community will be critical to the success of the city’s recovery effort, post-disaster.” said Chauncia Willis, City of Tampa Emergency Management Coordinator.
“It is anticipated that with the involvement of the small, medium, and large Tampa Bay area businesses, TBEC will serve to better provide member businesses with critical information during times of crisis, and to provide a forum for the business community to make proactive planning recommendations to the City of Tampa Emergency Management. The net outcome will result in improved decision making and planning before, during, and after crisis events.” said Steve Elliot, newly-elected President of the Tampa Business Emergency Council.
