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.

*Please note: the evacuation zones are different than re-entry zones after a hurricane, which uses Upper (3), Middle (2), and Lower (1) Keys for the re-entry sticker zones. Re-entry sticker information can be found at monroecountyem.com/reentrystickers.
Zone 1: MM 0 to MM 6
Zone 2: MM 6 to MM 40
