Evacuation Assistance ProgramWhat is the Assistance Program

Evacuation Assistance Program

St. Johns County Emergency Management has a revised Evacuation Assistance Registration Form, revision date March 2016. Any registration forms received on outdate versions will be returned to you with the revised form for completion.

What is the Assistance Program

Citizens of St. Johns County requiring assistance to evacuate to a shelter during an emergency situation should complete an Evacuation Assistance Request Form.

There are 3 levels of Evacuation Assistance Available.

  • Someone who requires transportation only to one of our General Shelters.
  • Someone who has a special medical need that requires a Special Medical Needs Shelter, but does not require transportation assistance.
  • Someone who has a special medical need that requires a Special Medical Needs Shelter, as well as requiring transportation assistance.

You must meet a certain medical criteria to be assigned to a Special Medical Needs Shelter. Special Medical Needs Shelters are for people with medical needs that can't be met in a General Shelter. Please review the information regarding what is and what is not available at a Special Needs Shelter.

Registering on this website is not a guarantee that emergency officials will be able to assist you in an emergency.
