Emergency Management


FDOT Emergency Management (FDOT EM) is a vital element of the State Emergency Response Team (SERT). The SERT ensures that Florida is prepared to respond to emergencies, recover from them, and mitigate against their impacts.


Hurricane Season Begins June 1st
It only takes one storm hitting your area to cause a disaster, regardless of the overall activity predicted in the seasonal outlook. Residents, businesses and government agencies of coastal and near-coastal regions are therefore urged to prepare every hurricane season regardless of any seasonal forecast. For the latest storm and preparation information visit the Florida Division of Emergency Management, National Hurricane Center, FEMA and FL511.

If You See Something, Say Something
The If You See Something, Say Something campaign respects civil rights or civil liberties by emphasizing behavior, rather than appearance, in identifying suspicious activity. Tips received through the hotline and online reporting form will go to the Florida Fusion Center, a 24-hour watch desk at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), where intelligence analysts will assess the information and take action in conjunction with the state's regional domestic security task forces. An online report can be completed through the FDLE website or by calling Florida's toll free hotline (855) FLA-SAFE (352-7233) or contacting your local law enforcement agency.

Cyber Security Awareness
Each time we sit down to a computer, whether at work or at home, we should utilize safe and secure practices. Every Internet user has a role to play in securing cyberspace and ensuring the safety of themselves and their families online. Cyber security is our shared responsibility. That means everyone has the potential to make a difference and educate others. You can raise awareness within your community, no matter what your role.
