Lee County Emergency Operations Center
The 32,000 SF Lee County Emergency Operations Center replaced a 40 year, undersized and vulnerable operations center as well as consolidate Lee County’s data resources from numerous sites into one hardened and survivable facility. The project was partially funded though grants from the State of Florida – Emergency Preparedness and the Department of Homeland Security.

The Lee County Emergency Operations Center is designed in full compliance with State of Florida Emergency Management requirements, Homeland Security Comprehensive Assessment Model (HLSCAM), United States Air Force Installation Force Protection Guide and the Department of Energy’s (DOE), Natural Phenomena Hazards Design and Evaluation Criteria. Special Design Criteria include – 200 mph Wind Loading, Finish Floor Elevated to 20 % above the Cat. 5 SLOSH Models, redundant service entries including power and communication transport, (3) 1250 KW Generators providing over 150% redundancy and storage capacity for fuel, potable water and sewer for 7 days of full activated occupancy.
