TREASURE ISLAND – City residents are being asked to stop by Treasure Island City Hall and apply for an evacuation re-entry decal to avoid frustrating delays or possibly even rejection when trying to get back into the city following a hurricane.

Treasure Island Fire Chief Bill Mallory announced the re-entry decal program today and said decals are now available at the customer service desk at Treasure Island City Hall, 120 108th Avenue, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

“A re-entry decal is meant to speed up the re-entry process, and minimize the amount of traffic and sightseers, people who shouldn’t be here,” said Mallory. “Public safety personnel need to be able to effectively protect property and the public from hazards that may still be present after a disaster, and so damage assessment teams can perform their duties.”

The re-entry decal goes on a vehicle’s front window. There are two types of decals – a red one for residents, and a blue one for businesses. To obtain the no-cost, re-entry decal, residents must provide proof of address within the city, such as a current vehicle registration or a valid driver’s license. Business owners in Treasure Island can use their current business tax certificate as proof.

The re-entry decal does not guarantee re-entry, said Mallory.

“Bear in mind that several hazards may exist after an event, such as downed cable and power lines, dune breaches, and debris, that can make roads within the city impassable.” he said.

Treasure Island has several methods of communicating with property owners and the public in the event of an evacuation. Quite possibly the best way to have the most current information, however, is to sign up for FirstCall, Treasure Island’s email/texting/voice mail service. FirstCall is a free service for Treasure Island residents that gives the city multiple ways to get the word to you whenever an emergency situation arises. Each member of a household can register to receive emergency notifications by home phone, cell phone, text message, or email. To sign up for FirstCall, go to www.mytreasureisland.com and click on “First Call Sign-Up” under the “Residents” tab.
