It is always good to have an alarm no matter what community or city you live in. Also a basic self defense class as well. I am an orange belt in Kenpo Karate and a yellow belt in Taekwondo so I can basically I can take a 12 year old kid. Our area is very safe! Always good to get to know the neighbors and watch out for each other. Please feel free to search for homes on http://www.BuyList.tv for homes here in the Fort Myers area.
