Our mission will be driven by this one purpose and commitment: to improve the health and lives of fire service personnel.

Schedule regular meetings with your administration to keep them informed and supportive of the team’s effort. Publish minutes, a newsletter, department wide e-mail, to keep your department personnel updated as to the progress and direction of the team.
Attend your region’s Florida Firefighter Safety and Health Collaborative meetings and state conferences that include firefighter safety. Review articles published in professional journals. Ensure all members are connected to our State F.A.C.E. Team by joining floridafirefightersafety.org & social media sites.
Be encouraged that you’re bringing health and quality of life for our fire service. That the work, energy and commitment of all members of your team matters more likely than not than any committee they’ve been apart of. Be consistent and persistent but patient.
