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. 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 unauthorized visitors from entering the area. If you are in need of a re-entry hang tag please Click Here for more information. It is important to note that the Tampa Downtown Partnership no longer manages this program so you will need to follow the link above.


We hope everyone stays safe, and please stay tuned to ALERT Tampa for more updates.
