Technology has been ramped up for this 2019 hurricane season in Lee and Collier counties.
For the latest information in a weather emergency, Lee County residents can use LeePrepares mobile app for iPhone or Android, on smartphone or tablet. It’s available for download now.
It’s the place to check for evacuation zones, which may have changed since last year, according to Lee County officials for all hurricane matters who gathered in May to update the media on preparedness planning.
On LeePrepares, residents can sign up for AlertLee, the alert system that previously was called Code Red. Users will be prompted to create a profile to receive alerts based on the information they enter.
Online, the same information is available through a web browser at AlertLee.com.
In Collier County, sign up for the alert system here.
If evacuation is called for in Collier County, find a list here.
As a member of the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network, WGCU will remain on the air during a serious weather event and issue reminders about the above as well as any new information as it becomes available.
