Emergency Preparedness Resources

The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), in collaboration with the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) is in the process of moving all providers from the Emergency Status System (ESS) to the new web-based EMResource.


Providers MUST register their primary and secondary facility contacts that are currently responsible for the data maintained.  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.
