After Hurricane Irma hit the Florida Keys in September 2017, police controlled access at a checkpoint in Florida City to re-enter the Keys, leaving many residents angry that they could not return to their homes.  Under a new program, Monroe County has started a volunteer program called the Monroe Emergency Reserves Corps. To get people on board, the county will provide early re-entry tags after a storm to those who take a special course related to disaster training.
