Welcome to the Emergency Status System!


Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) requires all licensees providing residential or inpatient services to use an Agency approved database for reporting its emergency status, planning or operations. The Agency approved database for reporting this information is the Emergency Status System (ESS).


A user account is necessary for entry into ESS. In order to obtain an account, contact your facility’s Administrator, CEO, or designated ESS Superuser. DO NOT create an account by using the "Log In" link above. You MUST register using an invitation emailed to you otherwise you will not have access to your provider, agency, or association.


If you are a government or health care association employee, please email AHCAESS@ahca.myflorida.com for guidance on how to obtain access to ESS.


If you already have an ESS user account, you may access the system by using the “Log In” link at the top right of the screen.
