Information for the Public
This website contains valuable information about how Florida residents and visitors to the state can prepare for disasters and how citizens can become more involved in the community.
For the latest information on road closures, visit the following:
Emergency Contact Information
The new emergency contact information system (ECI) implemented by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles allows Florida motorists to voluntarily provide emergency contact information online using their Florida driver licenses or Florida identification cards. The information can then be accessed by law enforcement officers to notify designated contacts if a motorist is seriously injured or killed in a traffic crash.
Personal Health Records - Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA)
You can find information to help you compare hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, health plans, nursing homes, and prescription drugs. The website also lists Florida health care facilities; information on health insurance; medical care resources for the uninsured; resources for seniors; and much more.
