Special Needs Program
Florida Statute requires county emergency management to provide the leadership and direction to effectively care for the community of special needs individuals in times of disaster.
Osceola County Emergency Management and partners have demonstrated consistent excellence in the planning and execution of the Special Needs Program.
The program includes annual registration and education for individuals with special needs. During periods of threatened conditions, Osceola County provides special needs sheltering for those who require sheltering. Partner organizations, such as the Osceola Council On Aging and the Department of Health, come together to ensure the utmost in care during a sheltering event.
