Are You Prepared for The Next Hurricane?


The Town of Fort Myers Beach has issued a press release reminding residents what they should do now, and how they can stay connected, if there’s a hurricane. Hurricane season begins June 1st and runs through the end of November. Here’s the town’s list…

– Have an evacuation plan and stock enough food, water and supplies to last for at least seven days after a storm.
– Pack insurance and other important documents along with clothes and personal items.

These are the six ways the Town recommends you stay connected for information:
– Sign up to receive alerts from the Lee County Emergency Operations Center.
– Sign up for alerts from the Town of Fort Myers Beach Code Red system.
– Sign up to receive text and/or email alerts as they are posted on the Town of Fort Myers – Beach website homepage during an emergency.
– Monitor the Town’s Facebook and Twitter social media outlets.
– Monitor local media and their social media outlets.
– Monitor the social media outlets of Lee County Government, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, and the Fort Myers Beach Fire District.

Check out for more information and to sign up for those alerts.

And of course stay tuned to the Beach Talk Radio Facebook page for up-to-the-minute information if we have to deal with another hurricane.
