Florida’s Department of Elder Affairs has a great site with resources to help plan for emergency situations like hurricanes and flooding, to name just two.  You can find it here, or click on the link:

“The Department’s Emergency Coordinating Officer coordinates with the Florida Division of Emergency Management on emergency preparedness issues and post-disaster response. The Department ensures that the Area Agencies on Aging and local service providers have all-hazards Disaster and Continuity of Operations Plans to be implemented during a threat of imminent disaster.

Your safety in a disaster depends heavily on your own actions, and developing a survival plan is the first and most important step.

The sections on the site include:
