If evacuations are issued, the city of Daytona Beach does not issue passes for re-entry to the beachside. Typically what happens is people will show their driver’s license or other form of photo ID that shows they live in the area they are trying to access. Officials and public safety also work with people who are trying to get to work, and encourage people to have ID or something from their workplace which verifies their place of employment.
