Public Shelter Information

No registration is required for a Public Shelter. Once an evacuation order is given, and the Public Shelter locations have been announced, proceed to shelter location.

If you need to go to a Public Shelter, but do not have transportation, please register with us by way of Printable Mail-In Form, or phone our office at 904-824-5550, and we will make arrangements for your transportation to a public shelter.

As previously mentioned, public schools in St. Johns County serve as our evacuation shelters. It would be good emergency preparedness to familiarize yourself with the shelter locations. Please remember, the school closest to your home may not necessarily be an evacuation shelter.
