TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Gov. Rick Scott sent a letter on Tuesday to Commissioner Pam Stewart encouraging Florida’s superintendents, community partners, parents and students to take time out of their day to show first responders and their families how much Florida values their service to our cities, counties, and state.

Gov. Scott declared next week, January 5-9, as Florida First Responder Appreciation Week.

“As our state continues to mourn the recent loss of law enforcement officers, we are reminded that our law enforcement officers, firefighters, and paramedics face dangerous and uncertain situations every day.

For their bravery and selflessness, we owe them our gratitude and appreciation.

To honor our first responders who risk their lives every day to protect Florida families, visitors, and businesses, I have declared next week, January 5-9, as Florida First Responder Appreciation Week.

Throughout the week, I invite you to join me in encouraging Florida’s superintendents, community partners, parents, and students to take time out of their day to show first responders and their families how much we value their service to our cities, counties, and state.

Florida First Responder Appreciation Week is a great opportunity to say, “Thank you,” to the first responders who keep us safe by having students or teachers write thank-you letters to their local police station or simply saying “thanks” to the first responders who touch all our lives.

Thank you for your hard work every day, and I look forward to continuing to work with you to make Florida the number one place in the world to have a great job, grow a business, and raise a family.”

Sincerely,
Gov. Rick Scott
