Are you one of the ten million Floridians yet to register your emergency contacts? Florida's new state-wide database allows all those with a valid Florida license or ID card to register loved ones as contacts in case disaster strikes.
The Emergency Contact Information database allows each resident to store up to 2 contacts. The database will be used by law enforcement in order to contact your loved ones in case you get separated or something happens to you.
It's officially the 2013 hurricane season here in South Florida. While the first threat of a tropical storm lingers in the Gulf of Mexico, consider registering your contacts to be one of the steps to take for hurricane preparedness!
Palm Beach County also offers the PBC DART app - a multi-function tool that provides disaster preparedness tips and tools as well as allowing you to report damage after a disaster. The app also includes evacuation & shelter information.
