Slumber Safe

Fort Myers Beach Fire Department is rolling out a new program called Slumber Safe. It piggybacks off of Ordinance 2016-001 which requires vacation and transient rental properties as well as non-owner occupied duplex properties in the fire district to be registered and have a fire & life safety inspection by the fire district.

This affects rental properties in Fort Myers Beach and near Pine Ridge Road.

Through Slumber Safe, rentals will be given a numbered decal once they pass a fire inspection. This will allow visitors to know that a property is up to code.

During inspections, working smoke alarms, proper fire extinguishers, and exposed wiring are usually problems. By seeing this sign, vacationers can be sure that everything is up to code.
