Emergency & Disaster Overview for Persons with Disabiliites

A disaster can strike at any time - sometimes without warning. It is important for every Floridian, especially 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.

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 for emergencies, protect themselves, and be survivors.
