Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
Safety is the cornerstone of the work of the Florida Forest Service. Whether it's in the suppression of wildland fires or the management of our state lands, we must always consciously work with safety as our number one priority. The safety programs provide the enhancement of specialized and technical skills necessary to carry out the successful effort to protect and perpetuate Florida's forest resources.
The Safety Office works closely with the Florida Forest Service's assistant director, bureau chiefs and deputy chiefs in the development and administration of safety, EMS programs and risk management issues.
The Safety Office within the Forest Protection Bureau is responsible for the researching, planning, designing, implementing, directing, and evaluating of statewide safety programs for the Florida Forest Service. The Safety Office also conducts systematic investigations and analysis of incidents involving Florida Forest Service personnel, programs and properties.
