The General Services and Human Resources Unit handles property and records management, personnel/human resource services, leasing and facility management, and disaster preparedness and emergency operations. As home of the agency’s Emergency Coordinating Officer, the unit coordinates with the Florida Division of Emergency Management on emergency preparedness issues and post-disaster response.

The coordinating officer ensures that the Department, Area Agencies on Aging and local service providers have approved all-hazards Disaster and Continuity of Operations Plans to be implemented during a threat of imminent disaster. Emergencies/disasters can include weather-related or man-made events, including hurricanes, tornadoes, civil disturbances, contractual disputes, epidemics, massive migrations, fires, nuclear power plant accidents, train derailments, terrorism, floods and bio-terrorism.
