NOAA Weather Radio

NOAA weather radios are still one of the most consistent means of emergency information gathering. Not only do they provide critical weather data, specified to your county, but we can also activate them to provide other pertinent information such as emergency road closures, civil disturbance info or other information the public needs to know.

Lee County EMA App for your Smart Phone on Andriod or Apple

The Lee County EMA has developed a smart phone app to help bring pertinent information to our citizens. This app not only provides a live data stream of the NOAA weather radio, but also has other great information and tools like the “Where Am I?” feature, which allows users to quickly see their location on a map that includes Latitude/Longitude and closest address, and you can send that information via text, social media or email. Additionally, we have a reporting feature which allows citizens to send us important information on storm damage, power outages or other situations which may be useful for us to be aware of.

You can sign up on their webpage to begin receiving customized weather alerts for your home, workplace or other locations, and while it is optimized with the use of a smart phone, it will still make notifications to you without one.

Outdoor Weather Sirens

While technically a technology of the 1950’s, theses outdoor warning sirens are still a tool in the toolbox for mass notifications for those within about a mile and a half radius who are outdoors. The sirens are not reliable source to receive weather notifications. Always have multiple ways to receive Emergency Notifications. Our sirens operate off of an automated polygon warning system.
