The most important thing to do is prepare and have a plan for any type of disaster, including a hurricane. Consider what situations may affect our community and how that would affect your family or business.
Listen to local officials for evacuation orders and relevant information, and do as directed.
The amount of time you have will depend on the hazard. For a hurricane, you might have a day or two to get ready. However, many disasters allow no time for people to gather even the most basic necessities, which is why planning ahead is essential.
Transportation is free to all Special Needs and primary evacuation shelters, and will be provided to residents who register a transportation request either as a part of a special needs application or if a resident has no means of transport to a shelter. Transportation will only be provided to and from a shelter. No other destinations will be provided.
Having a plan is important, and that plan should include your pets. Pet owners are strongly advised to make prior arrangements for sheltering their pets during emergencies. To find information on hotels that will accept pets, visit:
Some shelters will announce that they are pet-friendly. Pet-friendly shelters are designed to accommodate household pets. Owners are responsible for the feeding, care, clean-up, and behavior of their pets.
Shelter openings are incident-specific. Never go to a shelter unless local officials have announced it is open. Shelter openings will be announced through local television, radio stations, social media, and the Brevard County Emergency Management Website.
