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. Florida Statute Chapter 252 requires each county to establish and maintain an emergency management agency. Lee County established an agency for this purpose in 1975.
