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.
