You contacted me off the list regarding the Florida DEM areas and other 
data, but I wanted to pass on some info on the other layers requested and 
figured I would share with the list...

A neat feature of the Florida Geographic Data Library's Metadata Explorer 
( is to click on the 
Browse tab, click Other_Categories, and then click Emergency_Management -- 
and there you will find several of the layers you are looking for. I have 
been talking with Lex at GeoPlan, and we look forward to loading the site 
with more of this type of data.

Glad to see you are including the United States National Grid -- today I 
updated our USNG in Florida presentation on our webpage at If you are having any trouble 
selling GIS users on the value of this new tool, you may want to check out 
this presentation.

shrug-l: Emergency Info

I'm helping the local Civil Air Patrol (Tallahassee Squadron) put together 
a map of area emergency resources with GPS locations.  Three things I am 
currently looking for are:
1.) the Statewide FEMA regions (or districts, or whatever they are called, 
I was told there are 10 in Florida - but the Tallahassee CAP contact says 
they are responsible for Region 13 or maybe it was the 13 counties in the 
Big Bend area, whatever);
2.) the location of Fire & EMS Stations and; 
3.) (probably need to talk to FWC for this one) the location of all boat 
ramps and marinas (to find accidentally activated  ELTs).
I already have all airport and hospital locations, evacuations routes, 
national grid coordinates, etc.
