FDOT Emergency Management is a vital element of the State Emergency Response Team (SERT). Comprised of local, state and federal officials, the SERT ensures that Florida is prepared to respond to, recover from and mitigate against disasters.
FDOT EM is the leading agency for two SERT emergency support functions covering transportation, public works and engineering. FDOT EM also maintains a 24/7/365 watch office to maintain situational awareness to the department and its state and federal partners.
You can learn about the sections of FDOT EM and their key program responsibilities on the Divisions page.
