It drew a response from every Lee County fire department with assistance from aviation and fire departments in neighboring Collier and Charlotte counties. Multiple law enforcement agencies in Southwest Florida were also on scene to assist and manage the roads. Departments which responded included the Florida Forest Service, the Fort Myers Airport FD, South Trail Fire Department, Lehigh Acres Fire Department, Estero Fire Department, San Carlos Fire Department, Bayshore Fire Department, City of Fort Myers Fire Department, Fort Myers Beach Fire Department, Bonita Springs Fire Department, Sanibel Fire Department and Iona-McGregor Fire Department.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office helicopter made more than 80 drops from its Bambi Bucket, and I don't believe it was the only aviation unit operating.
