We believe that businesses play a critical role in community resilience and that coordination with the private sector is integral to effective emergency management.  By providing information about preparedness resources, current disaster updates, and access to recovery programs, we support the private sector during emergencies so that they can make the best decisions for their employees and business operations.  FloridaDisaster.biz is the private sector’s hub for emergency management information before, during, and after an emergency.

FloridaDisaster.biz is a partnership between the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) and the Florida Division of Emergency Management (DEM).

DEO is the lead agency for the State Emergency Response Team Emergency Support Function (ESF) 18. ESF 18 is tasked with coordinating local, state and federal agency actions that provide immediate and short-term assistance to business and industry as well as economic stabilization. Additionally, ESF 18 works with business and industry to identify available resources to meet the needs of the state and its citizens before, during and after a disaster.
