Who We Are

Lee County Emergency Management is organized around the National Incident Management System (NIMS) principles, usually referred to as the Incident Command System or ICS for short. This system works with the All Hazards approach to emergency management, from hurricanes to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). Our team consists of emergency management professionals and many dedicated volunteers.

We develop and coordinate programs to protect the public from large-scale natural and technological hazards or disasters. We serve all of Lee County and coordinate closely with the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM), local municipal emergency management programs, and many public service disciplines within the County and Southwest Florida.
