The Regional Coordination Team is a group of individuals within the Division who live and work in one of the seven regions of Florida. The Regional Coordinators are the Division’s liaisons to the local governments and communities. Regional Coordinators are the first line of support to the community on all emergency management issues including local plan development, preparedness, training & exercise, recovery and mitigation information. They interact with the communities on a daily basis to ensure coordination with the State in all five-mission areas of emergency management. Their primary function during incidents or events is to provide assistance, guidance and technical support to County Emergency Management (EM) Officials while ensuring the State Emergency Response Team (SERT) is provided timely notification of operational status, protective measures, anticipated resource requests and unmet needs that an impacted area may have.
