Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties provide information and services to keep residents, people with special needs and pets safe during an emergency, but they can’t do it alone. They need your help. Local officials want residents to make a plan to ensure everyone knows what to do, where to go and who to contact in the event of an emergency.
Knowing what to do is your best protection and your responsibility.
- Find out what reoccurring hazards are prone to your local area
- Locate Evacuation Shelters near your area
- Make a Family Emergency plan
Make sure to practice your plan and update it on a regular basis. Additionally, you may also want to inquire about emergency plans at work, daycare and school. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help create one in the aforementioned establishments.
