- Statewide Know Your Zone Mobile Website
The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) has developed a mobile website that uses the location services on smart phones to tell people their evacuation zones. So no matter where you are in the state, you can determine your evacuation zone. Your mobile device must have internet access to use this new product.
Using your mobile device access this site: http://map.floridadisaster.org/kyz
