The Dunedin Fire Department also provides disaster preparedness services to our Fire District. This involves planning and organizing the emergency response to any natural or man made disaster. The Fire Department becomes one of the lead agencies during any disaster situation.
Disaster Preparedness programs include:
Special Needs Evacuation Registration - This program is for anyone within an evacuation zone or in a mobile home park, who needs assistance to evacuate to a public shelter, nursing home or hospital.
Pet Friendly Public Shelter Registration - Residents must preregister themselves and their pets for the local pet shelters, as space is limited (Mobile home presidents are given first priority).
Disaster Mitigation - Information is available for homeowners and businesses advising them on how to lessen the impact of a disaster before it occurs. Hurricane preparation and other types of disasters are covered including Disaster Recovery following an event.
Mapping - Maps are available showing evacuation zones, evacuation shelters and routes out of the City of Dunedin and Pinellas County. Pinellas County Emergency Management
