The revised Monroe County Placard Reentry Program is available to agencies with representation at the Emergency Operations Center. These agencies can obtain early reentry placards for their employees from Monroe County Emergency Management. They are Group 1 Emergency Workers.
New this year, businesses or organizations not represented within the EOC but believe they have an essential response mission and wish to apply for inclusion within the Second Tier of the Placard Program, may apply directly with Emergency Management. The placard program enrollment period for 2018 is June 15 - July 31. They are Group 2 Emergency Workers.
Applications are available at www.monroecountyem.com/placardprogram or click below.
The applications will be reviewed by Emergency Management.
As of July 13, 36 Group 1 entities have been approved for a total of 1,569 employees. These entities are Emergency Medical Services, Public Utilities, County and Municipal Tier 2 employees, Telecommunications and First Push Government Contractors.
As of July 13, 150 businesses/organizations that do not operate in the Emergency Operations Center but have essential response missions have applied for the placard program. Emergency Management has approved 63 of those submissions for a total of 566 essential employees. The other 87 submissions received so far are currently under review.
Citizens who go through Monroe County’s Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) and become part of the volunteer Monroe Emergency Reserve Corps also can obtain early re-entry placards. To volunteer for this program, go to www.monroecounty-fl.gov/volunteermonroe or click below.
