Statewide Private Sector Re-Entry Program

Statewide Private Sector Re-Entry Program

If a storm impacts Florida this year, one of our primary goals will be the rapid restoration of local businesses that provide vital goods and services.  Local elected officials and Law Enforcement Officers will work together to determine when an area is safe enough for individuals to return.

At that point, individuals and businesses seeking to provide essential commodities and services to impacted areas will be allowed reentry by possessing and presenting to local officials:

  • A valid government-issued ID, such as a Driver’s License or passport;

  • Proof of Employment, such as Employer credentials or a letter on employer letterhead; and

  • A Demonstrated Need to enter the area, such as a work order, inventory list, or employer authorization. Local officials know their communities and are well suited to facilitate a safe and timely reentry process.

We look forward to working with local officials to ensure the safe and timely movement of necessary resources throughout the state.

Disasters affect all members of the community and we must be prepared to work together to meet the needs of all citizens during an emergency. 

Businesses can receive updated information regarding the transportation and distribution of essential commodities during a state of emergency declared by the Governor by registering in advance with the Florida Virtual Business Emergency Operations Center at www.flvbeoc.org.

If you have any questions, please contact the State Emergency Response Team’s Emergency Support Function 18 via the Private Sector Hotline at (850) 410-1403 or by email at esf18@em.myflorida.com.
