Florida Division of Emergency Management
The Division of Emergency Management plans for and responds to natural and man-made disasters. These range from floods and hurricanes to incidents involving hazardous materials or nuclear power. The division prepares and implements a State of Florida Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, and routinely conducts extensive exercises to test state and county emergency response capabilities.

The division is the state's liaison with federal and local agencies on emergencies of all kinds. Division staff members provide technical assistance to local governments as they prepare emergency plans and procedures. They also conduct emergency operations training for state and local governmental agencies.

After a disaster, the division conducts damage assessment surveys and advises the Governor on whether to declare an emergency and seek federal relief funds. The division maintains and staffs with representatives from other federal and state agencies The State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) in Tallahassee. The SEOC serves as the communications and command center for reporting emergencies and coordinating response activities. The division also operates the State Warning Point, a state emergency communications center staffed 24 hours each day. The center maintains statewide communications with county emergency officials.

Southeast Airports Disaster Operations Group - SEADOG
Click on the above hyperlink to find information regarding SEADOG (Southeast Airports Disaster Operations Group). SEADOG is a volunteer commitment of commercial service airport leaders among the southeastern states to provide mutual assistance in times of emergencies or disasters. Information regarding SEADOG is hosted on the website of the American Association of Airport Executives by the Southeast AAAE Chapter. SEADOG functions in support of the Emergency Mutual Aid Compact (EMAC), which is a nationwide agreement among Governors to facilitate sharing of personnel, resources, and equipment across state lines in an emergency. FDOT Aviation Office works closely with SEADOG representatives to help meet the needs of an airport adversely impacted by an emergency or disaster with support from another airport not impacted by the emergency or disaster. SEADOG has been instrumental in helping airport create effective Hurricane Preparedness Plans and participate in teleconferences in advance of a hurricane. SEADOG, including airport participation from throughout the U.S., demonstrated outstanding success in response to Mississippi and Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. Other similar, cooperative, airport groups are now emerging including WESTDOG among airports on the U.S. west coast.

Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) - Airspace
The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has now made available to all aviators and fire staff interactive current WAC, Sectional, and GNC Aviation Charts plotted with graphical Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) information to help pilots avoid inadvertent violation of Restricted Airspace due to fire fighting operations and other national airspace restrictions. The BLM National Aviation Office understands the importance for pilots to be aware and visualize graphically TFRs that are issued because of the low-level, dense operations of aircraft in a fire zone. Although it is the legal requirement of a pilot to rely on text based NOTAMS issued from the FAA, many times they are difficult to understand, and even more difficult to understand the extent of the flight restriction. This site will operate year round offering graphical updates at a minimum of twice daily (7am and 1pm Mountain), 7 days a week, during the fire season, and twice daily on business days throughout the rest of the year. TFR's will generally be updated much more frequently than the twice a day minimum
