Hurricane season began June 1 and has already been busy. Tropical Storms Ana and Bill have been named and fizzled.

The time to prepare your accommodations, attractions and dining facilities is now.

Please make sure your accommodation is registered to accept recovery and rescue crews should we find our destination in the path of a storm or act as host to another Florida county that might experience a storm.

Be sure to have the LeePrepares app on your smartphone. This tool is provided to assist individuals and families with preparedness and provides situational awareness when a disaster impacts Lee County.
