FRLA Provides Update on Hotels as Emergency Shelters

During the 2020 Hurricane Season, the Florida Division of Emergency Management is entering into agreements with hotels to serve as shelters during hurricanes. This agreement asks hotels to make a pre-arranged number of rooms available for use during a hurricane that requires evacuations. Hotels will be compensated for their participation in this program.

To take part in the program or to learn more, hotels may contact the Safer-FL Support Center at or 1-833-904-2260.

If you have already completed a survey expressing your interest in the program, you may receive an email or a phone call from the Safer-FL Support Center. Please know that agents from the Safer-FL Support Center are acting on behalf of the State of Florida and are discussing a legitimate program. We encourage you to contact the Safer-FL Support Center directly if you have any questions.
