SARNET is a very useful tool to have. It connects multiple agencies and individuals throughout Florida during emergencies. It is the old FLDOT radio network on UHF amatuer frequencies. The state still operates it, and the state EOC uses it to contact countie EOC’s during an event.

It is also used as an amatuer radio network for hobby use when no emrgency is in play.
