Florida First Responder Appreciation Week


For the third consecutive year, Governor Rick Scott is recognizing first responders and their families by proclaiming January 9-13, 2017 as Florida First Responder Appreciation Week. First responders play a critical role in keeping our communities safe, and all Floridians benefit greatly from the services they provide. Governor Scott is encouraging all Floridians to take the time out of their day to show first responders and their families how much we value their service to our cities, counties, and state. Schools and colleges can take this opportunity to help our state’s students express their gratitude for the sacrifices that first responders make to protect and assist Floridians.

To get started, the Department of Education has developed a toolkit for K-12 educators and Florida colleges, which can be accessed below.
