The National Incident Management Systems and Advanced Technologies (NIMSAT) Institute focuses on enriching public-private partnerships and advanced information technologies to enhance the national resiliency for a full range of potential disasters.
A University-led Business Emergency Operations Center
Founded in 2010, the LABEOC supports the business community during a disaster. The goal is to improve response, improve self-sufficiency, reduce reliance on FEMA and other federal assistance in order to maximize business, industry and economic stabilization, returning the business environment to normal operations as quickly as possible. The LABEOC is a joint partnership between the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, Louisiana Economic Development, and the NIMSAT Institute at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
