In an effort to prevent looting and burglary after a large-scale mandatory evacuation, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and the barrier islands have joined forces to provide free Emergency Access Permits to all businesses and residents of the barrier islands. Once a mandatory evacuation order has been lifted, Emergency Access Permits will be required to re-enter an evacuated area. There are nine entry points to the barrier islands. Access will be limited based on the closest entry point to your residence.
You will be asked to hang the permit from your vehicle’s rearview mirror for re-entry post-evacuation. Law enforcement officers will be posted at entry points where they will scan the barcode on your permit to verify your residency. With your help, we will can keep trespassers from accessing your property.
Hangtags are available at the customer service desk at Treasure Island City Hall, 120 108thAvenue, Monday through Friday, 8am to 4:30pm. Please look HERE at the brochure first. It has details on what you'll need to sign up.
