    Lee Memorial Health System Employees - Please refer to your department's hurricane plan. If you are not familiar with it, contact your manager or director.

  • How will I be contacted? By Phone? Listen to the radio? Who will notify me or should I call my supervisor?
    Ask your supervisor as to your specific department's notification system. Lee Memorial Health System has an arrangement with the following radio stations to announce activation of Team A and B: WGCU 90.1, Cat Country 107.1, B 103.9, WINK WNOG 1270AM.

  • How do I know if I am expected to come to work?
    Please speak with your supervisor to see if you have been placed on Team "A" or Team "B" and the schedule to report in.

  • What does Team "A" and Team "B" mean and which team am I on?
    It indicates at what point you are to report to work. Ask your supervisor which team you are on.

  • Will I have time to contact my family and take care of personal business before reporting in?
    You should have ample time if you make a commitment to plan ahead now, keep yourself informed, and stay "weather wise." Make your personal evacuation/survival plan for your family a priority. Be sure you know how long it will take you to get fully prepared and make allowances for heavy traffic, bad weather and a panicky general public. Plan ahead today because the hurricane season is already here.

  • May I bring my family to the hospital? Who does that include?
    Yes, but have them be prepared to help out. Seek other shelter options first. "Family" includes wife, husband, children and other dependents living in your household that have no other sheltering option.

Back to top

  • Where will family be housed?
    Get dependents registered at admitting immediately upon arrival. Space will be very limited. They may need to share a room or office with other people. At times, there is no space other than a space on the floor in a corridor.

Back to top

  • What limits are placed upon family members?
    They must stay in their assigned area. No smoking. Appropriate quiet behavior for a public setting is expected. They must remain calm and be flexible.

Back to top

  • What about small children?
    The child development center facilities will close when a hurricane warning is issued and reopen as soon as possible at each location. Child care is provided only for essential personnel working during the storm. If you are working and your spouse comes with your children, he/she is responsible for them. They all are to remain in their assigned areas. Meals in the cafeteria will be available but are limited, so you may want to bring additional food and snacks to suit your children. You must supply everything else for your children, including diapers, medicine, formula, blankets, pillows and toys.

Back to top

  • May I bring my pet to the hospital?
    Yes. In response to the needs of Lee Memorial Health System employees, administration and the Staff Activities Committee set up pet shelters during hurricanes if you are on Team A and there is no one to care for your pet. There is a Temporary Pet Shelter Agreement which must be filled out in advance.

  • How can I protect my car? Will it be safe in the parking lot?
    Unfortunately, no parking lot offers any safety. Do not bring boats or campers when you report to work.

Back to top

  • Will I need my name badge?
    Absolutely YES, and be sure to wear it where it can be seen.

Back to top

  • How long will I be expected to stay at the hospital?
    Team A is required to remain on duty until replaced by someone from Team B. Team B is required to report to work as soon as Lee County Emergency Management issues the "All Clear" for local roads. However, depending on the severity of the storm, Team B members may be unable to reach the hospital. Therefore, Team A members should be fully prepared for at least 3 to 5 days as a worst-case scenario. See the check list for suggested items to bring with you.

Back to top

  • When can I go home to take care of my property?
    Team A members can leave as soon as your replacement arrives, with permission from your supervisor, and when Lee County Emergency Management allows re-entry to your neighborhood.

Back to top

  • I am coming to the hospital after the hurricane to work. Will I need to have a car with the civil defense sticker on it?
    No. Please keep your Lee Memorial Health System employee identification handy to show law enforcement. Explain that you are needed at Lee Memorial Health System and are responding per policy.

Back to top

  • What if I am supposed to come to work as "B" team and am unable to get to the hospital because roads are impassable?
    Respond as soon as conditions permit. Keep yourself informed via local TV, radio broadcasts, or Lee Memorial Health System's facebook and twitter pages. Also, do not leave your home until the media indicates roads are passable.
