Flagler County Fire Rescue passed its annual inspection conducted by the Florida Health Department with flying colors and was twice referred to as “outstanding” in the notification letter.

“We have a wonderful staff that takes care to ensure the best for our residents,” said County Administrator Heidi Petito. “It is especially gratifying when other agencies acknowledge that in their inspection reports of our departments.”

The Florida Department of Health late last month wrote to Flagler County Fire Rescue the following: Congratulations on your outstanding Compliance Monitoring site survey conducted by the Bureau of Emergency Medical Oversight on Feb. 22. We found no deficiencies during our site survey. Your vehicles and service records were outstanding. Thank you for being a role model of excellence as an EMS provider in the state of Florida. Also, please extend my sincere gratitude to your staff for their assistance and for the overall contribution to your service and community. Your continued support of emergency medical services is deeply appreciated.

“This inspection letter makes me very proud of the team,” said Fire Rescue Chief Michael Tucker. “I know they are always going above and beyond to do their best, but it’s nice when others recognize it too.”
