Importance of Registration with Your Local EOC

All Florida emergency management offices keep a current list of people within a community who have a disability/special need so you can be quickly located and assisted in the event of an emergency. It is important that you contact your local emergency management office and notify them of your disability/special needs.

If you haven't already done so, you should also register in advance with your local emergency management office. Registering with your local emergency management office not only provides vital information to the county should you need assistance in an emergency, but may also qualify you for special sheltering or transportation programs. This is strictly voluntary.

Each county has their own process and forms for registering. Be prepared to provide your contact with medical information to complete county forms. A full list of every county emergency management office can be found here. Many of these counties have a special needs registration form downloadable from their website.

Don't forget to update these forms annually and make sure your information is always current.
