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.
