Be Prepared - Register for Special Assistance during Emergency Evacuations
If a hurricane is coming, do you know where to go for safe shelter or how you will get there? Hurricanes can be very scary -- even more so if you aren't sure how you will be able to evacuate without additional assistance. Help for families with special needs is available in the event of a hurricane or natural disaster, but most counties in the Tampa Bay area require that you pre-register through an application process. If your family needs special assistance in the event of an evacuation, use the information below to begin your application process:
Call Pinellas County Emergency Management to request an application for Special Needs Assistance during an evacuation.
Call the Hillsborough County Infoline (Citizen Action Center) to request registration for a Special Needs Shelter.
