City updates hurricane prep procedures for ‘no contact’

By Staff | May 13, 2020

The city of Sanibel continues to plan and prepare for hurricane season during the current pandemic. Every citizen, property owner and business is urged to view the city’s previous hurricane seminars. Due to the current social distancing recommendations, a 2020 live seminar will not be offered by the city.

To access the 2018 seminar, visit “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28SOys4-5ZQ”>www.youtube.com/watch?v=28SOys4-5ZQ.

In addition, the Sanibel Police Department reminds the public that hurricane preparation season is an appropriate time to confirm one’s registration for the AlertLee notifications, the emergency notification system that replaced CodeRed last year. The city and Lee County use the tool to send targeted alerts.

Those previously registered with CodeRed must sign up for AlertLee to receive alerts. Users can receive alerts on multiple devices at home and/or on cell phones. Sign-up for the free AlertLee service online at member.everbridge.net/index/892807736729346#/signup.
