Disaster Preparedness

Severe weather can happen anytime. Know what to do before, during and after extreme weather occurs. 

Emergency Management Services / Special Needs Shelters

While living in Florida it is important to keep in mind severe weather hazards and potential threats. Everyone should have pre-defined emergency plans and always keep an emergency supply kit ready and stocked.


Florida’s Department of Health assists with keeping a current database of individuals with disabilities or special needs. This is a statewide portal, but each county has its own process and forms for registration, and many forms are downloadable from their website. You must update your form manually to be certain your information is up-to-date and special needs registries are primarily managed by each county’s sheriff’s office.
