The Lee County All Hazards Guide is updated for 2022 and is available for Lee County residents and visitors. 

Copies of the All Hazards Guide can be found at libraries (www.leegov.com/library/branches) and the Lee County Administration Building, 2115 Second St., Fort Myers.

For neighborhoods or groups seeking large numbers of guides to distribute to residents, call the Lee County Emergency Operations Center at 239-533-0622 to place a request and schedule pickup.

The All Hazards Guide contains information needed to be prepared for natural disasters, including hurricanes. The guide contains contacts for resources and provides checklists and steps to follow to be prepared in case of an emergency evacuation.

The guide also is available in both Spanish and Haitian Creole.

National Hurricane Preparedness Week begins May 1. Follow Lee County Public Safety on Facebook www.facebook.com/LeePublicSafety for more information on being hurricane ready.

In addition to the All Hazards Guide, Lee County Emergency Management will host hurricane preparedness seminars.

If you are interested in attending one of these seminars, you can review the calendar at www.leeeoc.com. In the News sidebar on the right, click on “Hurricane Preparedness Seminars Open to the Public.” 

Lee County Emergency Management has two additional tools to help residents prepare for and be aware of hurricanes and other emergency situations – the LeePrepares app and the AlertLee system.

LeePrepares

The LeePrepares app – available in Google Play and the App Store – will be updated in May and assists individuals and families with preparing for and recovering from all types of disasters that may affect the community.

Features include:

  • GPS functionality for locating the user’s Evacuation Zone;
  • Real-time information from the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) on shelter openings, with mapping/directions and hurricane evacuations;
  • Current Emergency (EOC) Activation Level;
  • Recovery information on re-entry, curfews, points of distribution, and coping with disasters;
  • Links to Special Needs registration for those with special medical needs, and/or transportation needs during an evacuation;
  • Family Disaster Plan and Emergency Supply List;
  • American Sign Language Disaster Preparedness Videos;
  • Current local weather and hazardous weather outlooks.

AlertLee

AlertLee is an emergency notification system that allows registered users to receive telephone, text, and/or email alerts related to natural or man-made emergencies.

The AlertLee system will be used when an emergency arises that you should know about. Severe weather situations, missing persons, evacuation notices, boil water notices, fire or floods and active shooter situations are a few examples of the type of events that may warrant a notification.

To sign up, residents should go to www.AlertLee.com, select their municipality or unincorporated Lee County and complete the registration steps.
