Disaster Preparedness

Florida's Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program wants you to be prepared for a hurricane or other disaster. You can download the VR Hurricane Preparedness Brochures in English, Spanish or Creole. Remember it is up to you to make sure you and your family's needs may be met in the event of a disaster.

Make a Plan

VR encourages you to take advantage of an excellent planning tool to help you, your family, and your business develop a disaster plan. This plan is located at www.floridadisaster.org.

The Governor's Commission on Disabilities' Clearinghouse on Disability Information is another resource to answer disaster preparedness questions. Its phone number is (877) ADA-4YOU or (877) 232-4968.

The Florida Centers for Independent Living (CIL) can also help you create a disaster plan.
