Hurricane Evacuation Assessment Tool (HEAT)
The Hurricane Evacuation Assessment Tool (HEAT) assists Hillsborough County residents in determining if they are in one of the five evacuation zones. It also provides information on shelters, hospitals, fire stations, and sandbag locations. Search evacuation information by owner name, address, or parcel using HEAT.
Flood zones and evacuation zones are different. Flood zones are areas mapped by FEMA for use in the National Flood Insurance Program. Evacuation zones are based on hurricane storm surge zones determined by the National Hurricane Center.
Transportation during an emergency
HART provides free emergency evacuation bus services for people who need transportation to shelters. We encourage you to find out the routes and make plans before an emergency arises.
