Emergency Information

Provide Your Facility Updates

  • Log into FLHealthSTAT to create an account or to ensure that your account is active. Request login assistance by emailing flhealthsystems@flhealth.gov. Please use this system to update available beds and critical system issues (power outage, etc.). If an event is activated in your area, please update status, impacts or damage, and track needs. The system serves as a monitoring tool, so if you must make a request for assistance, please contact your local Emergency Operations Center--a link is available at: http://www.floridadisaster.org/fl_county_em.asp. To learn how to update your bed availability, use this Guide.


Financial Information

Be Prepared

  • Double check your evacuation plans and ensure that the location you plan to evacuate to is fully equipped to handle your residents; consider alternative plans if your primary evacuation location is in an area likely to be affected by the storm. Also, double check your transportation plans and contracts--some members were negatively affected last year during Hurricane Matthew when their transportation providers failed to honor their contracts.
  • Track the Storm through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
