Special Programs And Incentives Available To Punta Gorda Residents And Homeowners

Smoke Alarm Battery Changing Program

Residents and homeowners in Punta Gorda can take advantage of having the local Fire Department change smoke detector batteries, in addition to protecting lives and property through fire prevention, medical life support, fire suppression, hazardous materials response/identification, water rescue, and other emergency incidents effectively and professionally. Many Punta Gorda area homes and condos feature very high ceilings, making it difficult and dangerous for residents to update batteries safely. Chief Briggs initiated a program where residents can call the non-emergency line to have a fire official install new batteries purchased by the resident at no fee. For more information, please contact the non-emergency line at 941-575-5529.

Seawall Replacement Program

Punta Gorda residents reap the benefits of having a seawall replacement program available. Funds collected by the Canal Maintenance Assessment District get used for the maintenance or replacement of seawalls, mangroves, channels and channel markers in common areas. Punta Gorda has just over 100 miles of seawall and this program helps to preserve safety and integrity of the shoreline using an in house, customized seawall maintenance program. By working with trusted contractors, seawalls can get replaced before failure or significant collapse.

Volunteers In Policing Program

Punta Gorda residents enjoy more peace of mind, due to the Volunteers in Policing – or VIP Program. With over 60 community volunteers, this public safety initiative assists local law enforcement officers in various roles, including community services, bike, marine, and traffic patrols, criminal investigations, and other aspects of policing. Punta Gorda is home to one of few in the United States who actively patrol paths, trails, nearby attractions, downtown, and parks.
