The FDEM held an initial briefing with FLC and other agency representatives today.

Here are the updates from that initial briefing:

  • Florida is under a declared Public Health Emergency and not an Executive Emergency Order
  • Purchases and resources authorized and facilitated by FDEM (via WEBEOC) will have a 50/50 cost share status
  • Purchases and resources obtained by local government without FDEM approval and coordination currently is 100% responsibility of local government
  • Over the next couple of days, communication and operations schedules will be established to facilitate coordination between federal, state and local government
  • Expect schedule of routine communication efforts with local elected officials to be established soon
  • FDEM is currently in communication with local Emergency Managers regarding:
  • Local coordination plans and efforts
  • Local inventory of resources and current and future needs
  • Advising that all purchases, acquisitions and efforts should begin to be tracked and accounted for in anticipation of potential emergency funding efforts
  • Advising that resources are scarce nationwide, but if supplies are needed, local governments should attempt to utilize local vendors first, even if the supplies are on “backorder” (go ahead and get in line now)
  • FLC Note: priority for FDEM requests may be given to those jurisdictions that have already experienced COVID-19 cases.
