District 5 encompasses a geographic region of nearly 9,000 square miles, including nine counties (Volusia, Orange, Lake, Seminole, Osceola, Marion, Sumter, Brevard, and Flagler). With a population of more than 4,000,000 people, it is one of the fastest growing areas of the state. It encompasses over 15,000 lane miles of State Highway System roadways; more than 1,700 state and local bridges; 25 public use and 135 private use airports; and is home to deep water ports and several major metropolitan areas with flourishing metropolitan cities. Moreover, the District’s vast transportation network services the lion’s share of more than 100-million tourists annually, which raises the importance for emergency management preparedness, planning, and execution.

CDR|EM reviewed and participated in updating the existing Debris Management Plan with emphasis on identifying existing and new areas best suited for use as debris management sites during the 2021 hurricane season, as well as acquiring necessary FDEP authorizations. Plan updates included assuring compliance with FEMA, FDEP, FHWA and State guidance and policies.
Emergency Shoulder Use SOP and Presentation Support. CDR|EM reviewed and prepared updates to the Department’s emergency shoulder use SOP as a measure to ensure the highest possible state of readiness for providing enhanced traffic capacity on interstate highways during major hurricane evacuations. This included assisting with update of training materials and presentations for Department use.
