During emergencies or larger disasters it is important that residents and visitors stay informed. Lee County Emergency Management has multiple ways for you to get the most updated disaster-related information. Check out the links below and make sure you are prepared when disaster strikes.


AlertLee is Lee County’s mass notification system, provided by Everbridge. The system is capable of delivering rapid emergency notifications via one or a combination of the following methods: phone, text, email and social media. Lee County Emergency Management (LCEM) administers and maintains the AlertLee mass notification system for the purpose of alerting citizens to natural and man-made emergencies.

The AlertLee system will be used when an emergency arises that you should know about. Severe weather situations, missing persons, evacuation notices, boil water notices, fire or floods and active shooter situations are few examples of the type of events that may necessitate an AlertLee notification.
