FEMA Launches Assistance Portal to Help Floridians and Americans Trapped in Haiti

MIAMI, FL – The Florida Division of Emergency Management has launched a portal to collect information from Floridians and other Americans who may be trapped in Haiti by gang violence and rapidly escalating instability, endangering US citizens there.

femastAccording to the agency, Floridians in Haiti or their family members can complete the questionnaire on the portal to notify the State of immediate needs. 

“We will do everything possible to help Floridians and Americans who are in need of help in Haiti,” said Division of Emergency Management Director Kevin Guthrien, adding “I encourage those with needs to visit the portal today.”

The launch of the assistance portal follows Governor Ron DeSantis’ announcement earlier this week directing additional law enforcement, National Guard and Florida State Guard resources to the Florida Keys in forecasting an influx of illegal immigrants from Haiti.
