Winds will keep emergency workers off the streets

So Much Drama in the EOC

As the winds start picking up in Lee County, emergency workers will watch the sustained levels closely. Once the county begins experiencing tropical storm force winds, 40 mph sustained or greater, it's no longer safe for emergency vehicles on the streets.

This means no fire, emergency service or police response until the winds let up. For people who call 911 they get put into a queue. When the winds die down, responders will head out to the most urgent calls first.
