If you are Franklin County Resident and wish to gain entry into Franklin County after a disaster, we ask that you apply for a re-entry tag.

Re-entry tags streamline the process of allowing resident to check on their homes and businesses after a disaster. They identify you as a resident of the county so you do not have to pull out all your documentation for proof of residency at a re-entry check point. Tags are color coded to identify what zone of the county you are allowed to return to.



  • Apalachicola & West: Blue
  • Eastpoint: Red
  • St. George Island: Orange
  • Carrabelle: Yellow
  • Lanark Village & East: Green

These tags due not expire, so long as you keep up with it and your address does not change you do not have to reapply for one.

To apply for a re-entry tag, complete the form below and attach proof of residency
