Hurricane Preparedness
Collier County Emergency Management is provided statutory authorities under Florida Law to deliver "effective and orderly governmental control and coordination of emergency operations"
Collier County Emergency Management resides
under the Bureau of Emergency Services which also houses Collier County EMS, Med-Flight, Medical Examiner, and the Ochopee Fire District.

Collier County Emergency Management reports directly to the Administrative Services Department, the County Manager, and the Collier County Board of County Commissioners.

Florida Statute 252.38
Emergency Management operates within areas of prevention, mitigation, protection, response, and recovery phases of a disaster.

Most of what we do happens before a disaster occurs in our community.
Our focus is on the entire cone of uncertainty,
not the center track line.
Prior to the arrival of the storm, emergency services
(Law Enforcement, EMS, Fire) will begin reducing and eliminating most emergency services and response to 9-1-1 calls to ensure for the safety of emergency personnel.

You must be prepared to address and sustain your own needs through the storm and up to approximately 72 hours after.
