Special Needs Evacuation Assistance Form (PDF)

All Orange City Residents with Special Needs are asked to please complete the “Special Needs Evacuation Assistance Form” also found in the SNS Section of the Volusia County Page.

Since 2004, Volusia County has been impacted by multiple hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes and heavy rain events that produced severe regional flooding. These events have shown us the importance of being prepared.

Your preparedness plans may look different from a resident in another part of Volusia County. For example, people living in manufactured housing, mobile homes, flood prone areas or hurricane storm surge zones must prepare differently from those who plan to shelter in a site-built home. Proper plans and adequate supplies help residents survive these types of events.

Storm-Related Debris

In the event of a named storm, Orange City contractors will remove debris based on areas where the storm has generated storm debris to the extent that these areas can be safely accessed to perform debris removal.  Residents of impacted areas that can safely do so are asked to place any storm-generated debris on the public right-of-way.

The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. Residents are urged to ensure set-out debris is only vegetative and not mixed with any other types of debris or garbage:

 Vegetative Debris (whole trees, tree stumps, tree branches, tree trunks and other leafy material)

**Only loose vegetative debris will be collected, bagged debris should not be placed on the public right-of-way**

Do not place debris near a water meter vault, fire hydrant, mail box or any other above-ground utility. Only debris placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection until further notice.

For, regular household garbage, recycle and small amounts of bagged debris, the normal schedule/procedures apply.
