City of Milton Fire Department Available to Assist 

Local Businesses with 25% Occupancy Adjustment


To help promote Milton’s COVID-19 recovery efforts and community risk reduction, the City of Milton Fire Department 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 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 normal operating capacity in retail spaces and restaurants. Most restaurants have an occupancy load sign posted when approved occupancy is 50 person 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 City of Milton Fire Department is available to assist businesses in the city with determining their temporary occupancy loads and, if required, contact other appropriate agencies. 

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the City of Milton Fire Department at 850-983-5430 or email
