Press Releases

May is Military Appreciation Month and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater recognizes the commitment and sacrifices made by the current and former military members who call Florida home. Florida is home to 61,000 active service members and 12,000 National Guardsman who report to one of the state’s 20 major military installations. Florida also boasts the third largest veteran population in the nation, due in part to its commitment to keeping taxes low and creating the conditions for economic success.
The Florida State Fire Marshal’s Office, which operates under the direction of Chief Financial Officer and State Fire Marshal Jeff Atwater, is celebrating 2015 Arson Awareness Week by participating in community events across Florida to raise awareness about the harmful impact of arson.
AAW is celebrated May 3-9, 2015, and this year’s focus is Accelerant Detection Canines – Sniffing out Arson.  The State Fire Marshal’s Office is home to a team of K-9s whose work bolsters the efforts of investigators to solve arson-related crimes and reduce their rate of occurrence in Florida.
