Find Your Evacuation Zone
Recent hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, and winter storms have emphasized the need for us all to be prepared for disasters in the Tampa Bay region. The frequency and intensity of these disasters are increasing. In 1998 alone, Hurricanes Georges and Mitch were responsible for the death of over 7,000 people in Central America and destroyed billions of dollars worth of property in Central America and Florida.
While the City of Tampa and the Emergency Management Team are taking measures to protect the lives and property of the citizens, we cannot make this happen without you. We want to ensure that you and your family are well prepared for these disasters. These pages were developed as a guide to help you and your families prepare for disasters.
Annually, Hillsborough County publishes a Hurricane Guide. These guides are free and are available throughout the Tampa Bay Region. Pick up a few copies. Keep it. Use it. It may save your life.
