Okeechobee County Emergency Services
What is the S.A.F.E. Program?
The S.A.F.E. Program promotes an advanced line of communication, during an emergency, between Okeechobee County first responders and local, enrolled residents with a disability or special need.
Who should enroll?
Any Okeechobee City or County resident with a disability or special needs, such as:
other communication disorder
Other mental disabilities/limitations
How does it work?
Residents are given, at no charge, S.A.F.E.decals. The decal needs to be placed on the home, entrance window or door, and on the vehicle. In the event of an emergency, upon arrival, first responders see the S.A.F.E. decal and know to approach it with extra care and understanding. Local emergency departments can access the health information provided during enrollment, helping ensure a positive, safe, experience for all.
