Monroe County’s comprehensive emergency plan calls for a “Phased Evacuation.” This evacuation plan is intended to avoid unnecessary evacuation if some zones are expected to be affected and others are not. Locate the zone you live in so that you will know when to leave if an evacuation for your zone becomes necessary.
Monroe County Shelters will not open in a Category 3, 4, or 5 Hurricane, you will need to evacuate to the mainland out-of-county shelter.
Monroe County residents and their pets can seek public shelter at the E Darwin Fuchs Pavilion located at:
