City of Tampa Hurricane Tag Application

Hurricane Re-Entry Hang Tag Application

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 Code areas: 33602, 33605, 33606, 33609, 33611, 33616, 33619, 33629 and MacDill Air Force Base 33621 shown on the map). It is designed to make it easier for residents and business representatives to re-enter the area after evacuation orders have been lifted – and to prevent gawkers and potential criminals from entering the area.

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 - while keeping criminals out.

This service is only available if you live in or own a business in the following Zip Code areas: 33602, 33605, 33606, 33607, 33634, 33609, 33611, 33616, 33619, 33629 and MacDill Air Force Base 33621.
