Evacuation Shelter Assignments

Shelter status (open/closed) is available on the Pinellas County Emergency Management Department’s shelter page. This link has the current listing of shelters in Pinellas County


While PCACS is pursuing digital (WL2K/RMS Express) capabilities for every shelter, currently, the Shelter Kits only include digital mode support for Special Needs shelters. If you are assigned to a Special Needs shelter please make sure you are comfortable using RMS Express.

Shelters are depicted on the map below. The color of the icon indicates our readiness to operate that shelter. Red icons are where we have no operators currently signed up to volunteer. Orange icons are where we have partial coverage (only one operator assigned). Green are where we have full coverage. If you are interested, you can read about Shelter Operations which includes contact details for signing up to become a Shelter operator and look at the Shelter Training.

The assigned radio operators and level of evacuation the shelter is normally opened for is:
