Brevard County Emergency Management Shelters

Brevard County strongly urges that a Public Shelter be used Only As A Last Resort. You will be more comfortable sheltering with friends, family or in commercial lodging. If you require Public Sheltering, please be familiar with your designated Primary Evacuation Shelter location and your planned route to that shelter. Shelter Route Signs have been posted to assist you.

Plan for the following at a shelter:

  • Be sure to take enough food and supplies to last several days, including special diet foods, as food may not be readily available at the Shelter.
  • Bring bottled water (2 qts/person/day) and other beverages/juices/soft drinks.
  • Bring a manual can opener, eating utensils, paper plates, cups and napkins/paper towels.
  • Infant formula/food/diapers.
  • Have a 2 week supply of medications & First Aid Kit.
  • Cash or Travelers Checks.
  • Sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, folding chairs. BEDDING IS NOT PROVIDED IN PUBLIC SHELTERS.
  • Personal hygiene items and changes of clothing.
  • Flashlight, battery powered radio/TV and spare batteries, cards, games, books and toys.

Do Not Take Pets (except Guide Dogs), Alcoholic Beverages Or Weapons Of Any Kind To Public Shelters.
