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.
