Fort Myers, FL, May 17, 2007 --( The annual Governor’s Hurricane Conference Awards Banquet, held in Fort Lauderdale Wednesday evening, concluded with Fort Myers-based Storm Smart Industries receiving the ‘Corporate Award’ presented to Storm Smart Industries President Brian Rist.

Nominated by staff members of the Lee County Emergency Operations Center, Storm Smart was selected due to “substantial contributions to hurricane preparedness, response, recovery and research in the State of Florida.”

“It’s a true privilege to receive such a distinguished award,” says Rist. “On behalf of the 165 members of the Storm Smart team, I thank Governor Crist for such an honor, as well as our thanks to our local community for their support. It is nice to know that corporate responsibility doesn’t always go unrecognized. May we continue to build a stronger, safer Florida.”
