What should I do if I need power for my medical equipment?
If you or someone you love is dependent on electrically powered medical equipment and are still without power, we have a few resources and recommendations for you.
If you find yourself in a life-threatening situation, immediately call 911. If the situation is not life-threatening and you are in need of a temporary place to stay, consider going to a local special needs shelter. The shelter may have air conditioning, medical supplies, staffing and special services to assist you. Please call 3-1-1 or 2-1-1 to find open shelters near you, or visit www.FloridaDisaster.org/shelters. To find an open FEMA shelter, visit www.FEMAevachotels.com.
If you are able to stay with a friend or family member in a different location where power has been restored, this is also a good option. Should you need a high level of service or care, as of today, 100% of the facilities classified as high-priority critical infrastructure facilities have been restored.
