Preparing for hurricane Season: June 1 – November 30
Residents of Texas Gulf Coast EVACUATION ZONES should BEGIN NOW by making an evacuation plan, preparing an emergency kit and learning evacuation routes well in advance.
If you have special health care needs, register by dialing 2-1-1: Gulf coast residents with special health care needs (including those who are disabled or medically fragile) who live in evacuation zones and do not have friends or family to help in an evacuation should register for assisted transportation in advance by dialing 2-1-1. The 2-1-1 transportation assistance registry must be dialed IN ADVANCE. It is confidential. Do not wait until a storm is in the Gulf to register for assistance.
If you need transportation, register with 2-1-1: If you do not have a car or other vehicle, and you cannot get a ride with friends, neighbors or family, register IN ADVANCE for assisted transportation by dialing 2-1-1.
Evacuation zone information: If you are interested in registering and you want to find out whether you are living in an evacuation zone, dial 2-1-1 for information.
