A computerized database has been established to track the hangtags and as to whom they were issued as well as if they are reported lost or stolen. Hangtags shall act as a security system for the LCSO patrols after re-entry. Vehicles should display hangtags belonging to addresses in the specific area designated by the zone color.

When phased re-entry is opened:


· Vehicle goes to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office checkpoint with the hangtag hanging on the rear view mirror.

· Officials at the LCSO checkpoint do not need to stop the car if:

· The hang tag is visible AND

· The hangtag is the correct color of the zone (as determined by the Matlacha/Pine Island Fire District) to be allowed re-entry by
     LCSO at the current time

· Be patient- access to affected areas will be controlled.

· Stay tuned- listen to your local TV and radio stations.

· Have current, valid I.D.s or Hurricane Hangtags and a driver’s license with a Matlacha/Pine Island address. Security operations will include checkpoints.

· Avoid driving- roads will have debris which can puncture tires. Don’t add to the congestion of relief workers, supply trucks, law enforcement, etc.

· Observe curfew hours- don’t sight-see, especially at night!
