Be Tampa Ready for Hurricane Season

Did you know that you can pre-register to get sandbags in the event of a storm? To better facilitate the distribution of sandbags, we have a registration form that you can fill out now. You do not have to wait for a storm to be on the way. It takes less than five minutes. If the City activates sandbag operations, you will get an email and/or text with your QR code and information on when and where to pick up your pre-registered sandbags. It's that simple. 

Sandbag Pickup Locations* will be:

You must still be a City of Tampa resident and must show a valid Driver's License or State Identification at sandbag pickup to verify residency. There is a limit of 10 bags per family while supplies last.

*You will only be able to pick up sandbags if there is a State of Emergency declared and sandbag operations are activated at the order of the Mayor.
