Emergency Planning for the Disabled

A disaster can strike at any time, sometimes without warning. It is important for all Floridians, especially those citizens with disabilities and other special needs, to plan ahead for an emergency situation and know what to do in the event of an emergency.

Get Prepared - Be a Survivor

The Florida Division of Emergency Management website offers resources and information specifically tailored for people with disabilities / special needs and their families to help prepare them for emergencies. They also provide additional information, including videos, on preparedness planning, evacuating and sheltering.
