    The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) and the State Emergency Response Team (SERT) activated the Business Damage Assessment Survey in response to Hurricane Ian.

    • Structural damage to homes/businesses
    • Storm debris, including downed trees/branches
    • Human needs, including food, water, clothing, and shelter
