Lee County is fortunate to have a very strong hospitality industry. We must all take a moment to insure that we as an industry are prepared to deal with a major storm or other emergencies that may interrupt our ability to do business. The Visitor and Convention Bureau has put together this booklet so that you can use it as a guide to develop your own disaster preparedness plan. This guide will enable your organization to get back to what we do best, providing a safe, relaxing environment for our guests. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Jennifer Walla ( 

To locate your business for evacuation zones, routes, and public shelters, please download the attached document Evacuation Routes/Information. This is a public document and can be distributed to your guests and visitors.

We suggest that all hotel and attraction executive and management personnel complete the Tourism Industry Contact Form. Once you have accessed the Simpleview Extranet, please click on “Learn More” under 2024 Hurricane Preparedness. This information is kept strictly confidential within the crisis staff of the VCB – used only during a time of emergency. This assists the VCB in obtaining information or relaying information to or from your property should a crisis occur.
