Lee County Public Safety Annex

To meet the Public Safety needs of this growing community, Lee County challenged the design team to prepare program and design solutions for a Public Safety Annex to be integrated into the existing Lee County Emergency Operations Center in Fort Myers, FL. The expanded building will house Public Safety Administration, Emergency Medical Services, and a new Emergency Communications Center, with space for Public Safety’s Division of Emergency Communications, Lee County Sheriff's Office Communications, and the Lee County Department of Transportation’s Traffic Operations Center. When activated for an emergency such as a hurricane, the center will be staffed with key personnel from first-responder agencies, emergency relief organizations, county departments, municipalities, utility companies and other essential agencies. To accommodate the numerous personnel during emergency activation, the new facility will be equipped with technology and equipment, numerous restrooms, showers and sleeping accommodations, an extensive training facility, and additional amenities to contribute to the building’s efficiency and operational requirements.
