NEW - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking   Posted: 18 December 2014

Notice of Proposed Rule Development

 

RULE:                        RULE TITLE:
69A-64.001                F.A.C. Scope
69A-64.003                F.A.C. Ability to Pay Benefits

 

Department: Department of Financial Services
Division: Division of State Fire Marshal

PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose and effect of this rulemaking is the repeal of Rule 69A-64.003, F.A.C., because it is not necessary. As well, Rule 69A-64.001, F.A.C., is being amended because the definition of “employer” is in the statute and not in the rule.

SUMMARY: The rule will establish a voluntary certification program for firefighters who desire to perform the duties of a safety officer. The safety officer is the person who is qualified to manage different elements of a fire department safety and health program. A person who completes the program will receive an Incident Safety Officer Certificate of Completion, a Health and Safety Officer Certificate of Completion, or a Safety Officer Certificate of Competency. This program is based on the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1521, Standard for Fire Department Safety Officer, 2015 edition.

SUBJECT AREA TO BE ADDRESSED: This rulemaking is part of the agency’s comprehensive review of existing rules that focused on eliminating those that were determined to be unnecessary or duplicative. The amendments will remove superfluous provisions related to firefighter death benefits.

RULEMAKING AUTHORITY: 112.191, F.S.

LAW IMPLEMENTED: 112.191, F.S.

IF REQUESTED IN WRITING AND NOT DEEMED UNNECESSARY BY THE AGENCY HEAD, A RULE DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD AT THE TIME, DATE, AND PLACE SHOWN BELOW:

DATE AND TIME: Tuesday January 13, 2015: @ 10:00 a.m.or immediately following the conclusion of the Rule Chapter 69A-37, F.A.C. workshop.

PLACE: Florida State Fire College, Auditorium, 11655 NW Gainesville Rd, Ocala, Florida 34482.
