Emergency Preparedness Resources

The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) requires all licensees providing residential or inpatient services to use an agency approved database for reporting its emergency status, planning or operations. The current approved database is the web-based EMResource.


Providers must register for the system and designate a safety liaison/primary contact. Entering additional facility contacts in the system is encouraged. In addition, a person affiliated with the provider such as a corporate representative may also enroll as a contact.

A completed User form must be submitted to the Agency for each contact and/or affiliated individual. User credentials will be sent directly to the contact upon processing and approval of the User form. Facility User Agreement forms may be obtained by contacting (850) 412-4326 or the appropriate licensing unit.

Partners of the Agency must submit a Partner user agreement [93KB, PDF]. Partners include individuals employed by a state or federal governmental agency, health care provider association or those that work with AHCA during emergencies.
