Lee County Emergency Operations Center
The risks we face in Southwest Florida are as much a part of our lives as driving to work, walking on the beach or surviving another winter tourist season. If we are not prepared to protect our lives and property, the cost can be devastating.
Safeguarding the life and property of its people is an innate responsibility of government. In Florida Statutes, Chapter 252, each county is required to establish and maintain an emergency management agency. Lee County established an agency for this purpose in 1975.
Today we are known as Lee County Emergency Management and are managed through the County’s Division of Public Safety.
