Floridians are encouraged to prepare for all types of emergencies, including hurricanes. Building yourself an individual or family emergency plan for a disaster is the first step in this preparation. During a crisis situation emergency, federal, state, local government and other agencies may not be able to meet your immediate needs. You should be prepared to take care of yourself and your loved ones for a minimum of 72 hours. Those individuals with a special need are encouraged to plan well in advance and identify an emergency support network and to build a disaster supply kit.
