Other Sandbag Distribution Locations

  • Brevard County is also providing sandbags. See this press release for more information.
  • Most home improvement stores carry sandbags. You can purchase them and keep them in your hurricane supply kit and then fill them with any kind of sand or dirt available on your property. Home improvement stores often also sell fill dirt as well. 
  • Do not use sand from the beach to fill sandbags. 

About Sandbags

  • Not all homes need sandbags. If you are in a low-lying area that is prone to flooding, sandbags may be used to protect your home by placing them across doorways to prevent water from entering the building. 
  • Visit the Brevard County Flood Zone Map and plug in your address to determine whether you live in a flood zone.
