Monroe County Evacuation Early Re-entry Placard Program 
Monroe Emergency Reserve Corps, Inc., (MERC) is the volunteer non-profit organization that works directly with Monroe County’s Office of Emergency Management (MCEM).  MERC organizes all training necessary for Monroe County Florida Residents to receive an early Re-Entry Placard to return into the Florida Keys earlier than non-trained residents, should an evacuation and re-entry checkpoints be necessary.

Individuals who wish to participate in this volunteer program will, upon completion of all requirements, receive the Monroe County early Re-Entry Placard to grant early access to return to your Key after an ordered evacuation. The training is completely free and consists of three steps which will take approximately 30 hours to complete.
