Florida Visitor's Guide
Safety is of the utmost concern. With a growing population approaching 20 million residents and an influx of millions of visitors and vacationers every year, we recognize the importance of maintaining security and protecting Florida citizens and its visitors from harm's way. As a result, this website was created to bring forth information and guides that are designed to help the individual, the family members, the communities, the businesses and the organizations within Florida become more familiar with the dangers of natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires, etc., and man-made disasters such as terrorism and hazardous chemical spills. Furthermore, it is hoped that the guides and detailed checklists provided within MySafeFlorida.org are comprehensive enough to help citizens become more prepared for such disasters.
For your sake and your family's sake please review those preparedness guides and become a more informed citizen of Florida. The types of disasters that can occur in Florida are ubiquitous in nature and thus these preparedness checklists can be just as beneficial for the people living outside of the Sunshine State. As a result, regardless of whether you are a Florida resident, a future Florida resident, a resident of another state or country, or a soon to be visitor to the Sunshine State, it is encouraged that you become familiar with the preparations needed to mitigate dangerous events and to be able to cope with emergencies.
The intentions of this website are two-fold:
Firstly, we want to ensure that the citizens of Florida and its visitors are safe. As millions of visitors flock to the Sunshine State every year, it is of utmost importance to ensure that everyone is safe and protected. Consequently, the preparedness checklists are created to disperse information on disaster preparedness. By becoming more familiar with the potential hazards, you stand a better chance of recognizing the danger signs and gaining the ability to cope with such disasters, should they ever occur. To find the checklists and guides, please visit the preparedness section of this website.
Secondly, we want to ensure that individuals and families are able to enjoy their time in the Sunshine State. As such, this section of the website is dedicated to providing information relevant to the wonders of Florida that attracts millions of vacationers and visitors every year.
