Evacuation Information


The Chatham Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) announces a new telephone line for residents seeking information regarding re-entry into Chatham County when they evacuate due to a hurricane. 

Following an evacuation, any Chatham County resident or business owner can call this number to obtain information on when it is safe to return home. 
The CEMA Re-entry Hotline number is 1-855-880-2362 and is toll-free.  The re-entry hotline is a valuable communication tool for residents who have evacuated to seek shelter outside of Chatham County.  Local media outlets, shelters, as well as CEMA will be distributing information; however, the re-entry hotline is another way for our residents to gain re-entry information following an evacuation.   

Again, this hotline is solely for the purpose of distributing information about re-entry back into Chatham County following a hurricane.  This line will not be used for the dissemination of storm information, damage reports, and other disaster information.

CEMA realizes residents may not need this number now; however, we hope they will program it into their phones and include it in their evacuation preparations.
