Florida Fire Service 2022-2023 Needs Assessment
The Division of State Fire Marshal is implementing an annual
Florida Fire Service Needs Assessment
Survey. The purpose of this survey is to identify the level of resources available to Florida fire departments and to determine the department's greatest need. The focus of this survey includes identifying specific needs in the areas of training, firefighter personal protective equipment (PPE), firefighter self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), and fire engine pumper apparatus as well as equipment, supplies, and educational training designed to mitigate exposure to hazardous, cancer-causing chemicals.,
The information requested in the survey includes your department profile, apparatus, and equipment status, certification levels, and critical fire department needs and will be used to support legislative funding requests and Florida’s Firefighter Assistance Grant and Fire Decontamination Equipment Grant Programs.
The completion of the Needs Assessment Survey is an eligibility requirement for the Firefighter Assistance Grant and the Fire Decontamination Equipment Grant Programs. The
Firefighter Assistance Grant Program
was established to improve the emergency response capability of volunteer fire departments and combination fire departments and provide financial assistance to improve firefighter safety and enable such fire departments to provide firefighting, emergency medical, and rescue services to their communities. Grant funding is available for training, PPE, SCBA’s, and cost-share subsidy for AFG apparatus awards. The
Florida Firefighter Cancer Decontamination Equipment Grant Program
was established to help protect the health and safety of firefighters and provide financial assistance to help fire departments, including volunteer fire departments, procure equipment, supplies, and educational training designed to mitigate exposure to hazardous, cancer-causing chemicals.
Completing this survey should take no more than ten minutes of your time! If you encounter any issues while completing this survey; send an e-mail to FSFC.COMMENTS@MyFloridaCFO.com.
