Welcome to the BICEPP Website.

During a disaster, the primary responsibility of local government is to restore basic public services before rendering assistance to the private sector. Direct aid may not be available immediately. Pre-disaster mitigation measures and post-disaster recovery plans are essential. By working together, we can efficiently prepare for disasters.

BICEPP.org - Business Industry Counsel for Emergency Planning and PreparingThe Business and Industry Council for Emergency Planning and Preparedness (BICEPP) was founded to be a forum to exchange information in emergency preparedness and contingency planning within the business community. In 1983, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley was joined by business leaders to create BICEPP. They organized to provide a forum in which businesses large or small could exchange ideas, increase their knowledge of, and work together for, the betterment of preparedness.

BICEPP is a non-profit California corporation whose Board of Directors serve without compensation.
