Florida is known for its resiliency in enduring and responding to all types of hazards, natural or man-made. Responding to these types of threats requires commitment and cooperation between communities, businesses, organizations and governmental agencies.
As the lead agency for Emergency Support Function 8 (ESF8), the Florida Department of Health (DOH) is responsible for coordinating public health preparedness efforts statewide. This includes preparing for and responding to incidents and events that may impact healthcare systems, especially in the event of a large-scale public health threat. The goal of Florida Health Response is to provide a central location to access the portfolio of diverse applications that support key preparedness and response activities.
