    About SAFER

    SAFER is the successor of the Santa Rosa Long Term Recovery Organization which developed after hurricanes Ivan and Dennis. During periods when there are no disasters, SAFER attempts to meet the needs of the less fortunate in the community.
    MISSION: to foster efficient, streamlined service delivery to people affected by disasters, while eliminating unnecessary duplication of effort, through cooperation in the four phases of disaster: preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation.
    VISION: To create the most resilient community possible to safeguard our way of life.
    SAFER Santa Rosa County is a humanitarian association of independent organizations who may be active in all phases of disaster.
    SAFER Santa Rosa is not a competing or exclusionary organization. SAFER Santa Rosa is intended to be a network for organizations active in disaster. Each SAFER member organization will maintain its own identity and independence while closely collaborating with other SAFER Santa Rosa member organizations. COAD - Community Organizations Active in Disasters
    SAFER - Support Alliance For Emergency Readiness

    I was contacted by the United Way of West Florida. They told me they had not had ANY groups in Santa Rosa sign up for the Day of Caring, and only 2 agencies are hosting projects.
    Please spread the word and sign up your business, church group, neighborhood, family, or non profit and do good in our community.
