DAE Employee Checklist

If you have been designated a DAE role, here are the things you need to do:

A. Verify your BlueBook listing

  1. Log in to BlueBook and ensure all of your contact information is correct.
  2. Select a Disaster Role of primary interest, and
  3. Fill out the rest of the form to include critical skill and certification data.


NOTE: Every attempt will be made to place employees in their expressed areas of interest, as selected in the BlueBook application; however, they may be placed in the area of greatest need. Please note that some departments have responsibility for staffing certain Disaster Roles and; therefore, may directly assign their employees to that role. The default assignment for all DAE personnel is "Regional Staging Areas".

B. Prepare for Hurricane Season

Personal preparedness is the responsibility of all members of the community, especially for DAE personnel. This program's ability to support disaster response and recovery operations will hinge on a DAE's responsibility to effectively address their personal and family needs.

As essential members of the Miami-Dade County's Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP), it is important for DAE personnel to take a proactive approach in ensuring they are prepared for disasters.

Preparedness starts with the following three simple principles: Make a Plan, Get a Kit and Be Informed.

The following sites are available to assist with learning more about disaster preparedness:

C. Familiarize yourself with your assigned Disaster Role

D. Remember the DAE Hotline phone number

Following a storm or another disaster related event, an effort should be made by all DAE personnel to contact their supervisor/manager, or designee to report their personal situation and receive advisories or instructions. If contact with their supervisor or manager is not possible, every effort shall be made to call the DAE Hotline: 305-499-8777 to report and receive instructions.
