​What is the Emergency Plan?

Lee County’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) explains the processes, procedures, and tools put in place to prevent, prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate against the hazards identified in the Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (HIRA), but will also be utilized for all hazards.  Lee County uses the Incident Command System (ICS), built on the National Incident Management System (NIMS) framework, to standardize all incident responses, and to prepare for and respond to disasters.  Using ICS provides accountability for each phase of an incident, as well as a written history of the event.  NIMS was officially adopted as the standard for incident management by Lee County Resolution No. 05-12-29 in 2005.
