Make Evacuation Plan for Hurricanes


Hurricane season doesn’t officially end until November 30th so keep your plan intact or develop one now. The Daufuskie Island Fire Department has produced a Hurricane Evacuation Plan brochure offering pre and post-storm information, important phone numbers and web sites. The brochure details evacuation operations for island residents using the county-provided boat.

Those residents riding a private ferry system should check with their General Manager for guidelines relative to their community. This brochure has been distributed to the mailboxes of all island residents. Additional copies are available at the fire station. The brochure is also available on The Front Porch’s web site ( If you have any questions regarding hurricane evacuation operations, contact Beaufort County Emergency Management at 255-4000. After the hurricane passes, re-entry information will be recorded on the Beaufort County’s public telephone number 1-800-963-5023.
