A Quick Message from
Fire Chief

The First Responders of the Sanibel Fire Rescue District are always looking for ways to improve the services we provide to our community. We are excited to announce that we are providing a new program that allows us to protect our residents lives and property in even more effective ways. The program is Community Connect. It is a free, secure, and easy way for our communities to provide critical information about their households to our first responders. By providing information about you or your residence that you feel is important for our emergency response personnel to know about in the unfortunate event that there is an emergency, we can ensure you and everything you care about can be better protected.

what kinds of information can i provide?

Any information you provide through Community Connect is completely voluntary and based on what you are comfortable sharing. We have made it easy for you to know what may be important by organizing your secure portal into buckets of information you can enter.

Your Property

Understanding critical information such as your residence type, whether or not you have fire sprinklers, or designated family meeting places, improves our ability to respond and make decisions during an emergency.

Your People

Let us know who is best to contact in case of an emergency. Your contacts can help us with everything from access, to how to deal with potential hazards or locate occupants. Getting in touch helps us better communicate at the time when it’s needed most.

Your Needs

If you or members of your family have mobility or other types of functional needs that may require additional assistance, letting us know means we can plan accordingly and respond more quickly to those needs.

Your Pets

Your pets are part of the family too. We want to make sure that we are able to evacuate pets and best handle them as best we can during an incident. Tell us about any type of pet at your residence – even take a photo so we can spot them easily!

WHO should self-report?

Everyone should self-report. Even if you are asymptomatic or tested negative, it is important to let First Responders know your situation. If you are high-risk or have any access and functional needs, please also self-report so that emergency services can be better prepared to help during this crisis.


It is important for everyone to report regardless of age, health or suspicion of infection. Do your part and help your First Responders!


People who are considered high-risk from an age and health perspective or have access or functional needs should report.


Anyone who has tested positive, is showing symptoms, or has been in contact with anyone who has tested positive or has symptoms should report.


In addition to Community Connect enabling your First Responders to better protect your property and family’s well-being, you can also handle all Burn Permitting within the Community Connect portal. Access, manage, and seek approval for burns within the same account you use to manage your property and its occupants.
