Hurricane Evacuation Shelter Locations

The following shelters are designated as official hurricane shelter locations by the Department of Emergency Management. If possible, evacuate to the home of a friend or family member outside of the Evacuation Area. A shelter should be your refuge of last resort if you have absolutely no where else to go.

Please monitor our website, local radio and television stations, or contact the Department of Emergency Management at (904) 824-5550 to find out which Shelters are open when an evacuation order is given.

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.
