Lee County Emergency Management Update- 9/13/17

Lee County Emergency Management

Lee County Emergency Management is working on locations to set up points of distribution where residents can come for water and other essential items. Location details will be released soon. It’s anticipated that multiple sites will be announced. 

Emergency Management also is working with partners to set up a Disaster Recovery Center. This will be a physical location where impacted residents who have signed up for FEMA assistance can walk in and apply for State and Federal Assistance. 

Many roads in the community are still flooded and may be impassible. Please observe warning signs and do not drive through standing water. A list of roads where caution is needed is at Intersections without working traffic signals must be treated as four-way stops. 

We are transitioning out of the Germain Arena shelter to the three other available shelters at Alico Arena, Dunbar Middle School and North Fort Myers Recreation Center. There are about 600 residents in these shelters. 

For well-being checks, please continue to call 2-1-1 or 239-433-3900. Please do not call 9-1-1 for well-being checks. 9-1-1 is for life safety emergencies only.
