Residents at RiskAssisting Our Community's Vulnerable
During an emergency, many of our residents may need assistance in order to stay safe. Here, we have provided helpful information for our special needs and/or older adults to access needed resources during times of disaster.
The Florida Department of Health, in coordination with county health departments and county emergency management agencies, have developed a registry for persons with special needs to register to receive assistance during a disaster.
The State of Florida’s Department of Elder Affairs annually publishes its Disaster Resource Guide for Older Adults. The Guide includes tool kits, articles, and resource lists to help older Floridians prepare for natural disasters and mitigate potential damage.
