Pensacola Fire Department Available to Assist Businesses with 25% Occupancy Adjustment
To promote Pensacola’s COVID-19 recovery and community risk reduction, the Pensacola Fire Department Fire Marshal’s Office is available to assist business owners with calculating their new 25 percent maximum occupant capacity. This service is provided as a courtesy to business owners within the City of Pensacola limits. Executive Order 20-112
from Gov. Ron DeSantis allows businesses to reopen in Florida with limitations on occupancy. The order limits occupancy to 25 percent of capacity in retail spaces and restaurants. Most restaurants have an occupancy load sign posted when approved occupancy is 50 persons or greater. However, most retailers do not have an occupant load posted and may not know how to identify 25 percent of their capacity. The PFD Fire Marshal’s Office
is available to assist businesses in the city with determining their temporary occupancy loads and, if required, contact other appropriate agencies.
