Knowing when and where to seek shelter is important. 

Always pay attention to state and local government rules regarding evacuation orders. If you are ordered to evacuate and need to seek shelter at a minimum be sure to bring with you:

  1. Copies of important documents
  2. Clothes for at least a few days
  3. Prescription medicine
  4. Pets and any supplies your pet needs

Remember, not all shelters allow pets so please check your local government sheltering rules in the links below.

Special Needs Shelters:

If you have special needs you can sign up with the Florida Special Needs Registry. By registering state officials are alerted to your needs and they can keep you informed of evacuation and sheltering options near you.
