New City of Tampa Hurricane Re-Entry Program
The City of Tampa Hurricane Re-Entry Program is for residents and businesses in the areas most likely to be evacuated during a hurricane event (within Zip Codes 33602, 33605, 33606, 33607, 33609, 33611, 33616, 33619, 33629 and MacDill Air Force Base 33621 see map).
It is designed to make it easier for residents and business representatives to re-enter the area after evacuation orders have been lifted.
During a catastrophic hurricane event, public safety officials will screen vehicles attempting to re-enter the impacted area. In an effort to avoid long lines, the vehicle Re-Entry Hang Tag will allow public safety officials to quickly identify vehicles approved to re-enter. Those vehicles will be waved through, bypassing the normal public screening required to enter the affected area. The Re-Entry Hang Tag Program will enhance safety and speed up the recovery process by getting residents and business representatives in.
This new City of Tampa program replaces the re-entry program that was previously managed by Westshore Alliance. The City of Tampa Office of Emergency Management is in the process of mailing hang-tags to commercial property owners in the Westhore District that are located within the zip codes identified above.
