Florida Department of Environmental Protection Accessibility Policy

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment or in the admission and access to its programs, services or activities. DEP is committed to ensuring that its programs, activities, employment opportunities, and services are available to all persons, including persons with disabilities.

The DEP Accessibility Coordinator, located in the Division of Administrative Services, Bureau of Human Resources Management, has been designated to coordinate and carry out this department's compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). For persons with a disability needing an accommodation to a DEP program, activity, employment, and/or service, other than State Parks, please contact Geraldine Austin at 850-245-2522 or For State Parks programs, activities, employment and/or other service, please contact Terrance McCaffrey at 850-245-3053 or

To ensure we have enough time to provide appropriate accommodation, the Department would appreciate receiving your request for accommodation as early as possible before the scheduled event or need for the service.

Web Site Accessibility

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's web designers and developers make every effort to provide their users with accessible information in a format which is equally available to all individuals. In designing and creating its Web Site, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection implements the accessibility guidelines and principles of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d).

If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, a screen reader, TTY, etc.) and the format of any of our Web Site material interferes with your ability to access the information, please Contact Us and a Department of Environmental Protection staff member will contact you to provide further assistance.

To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate your disability type, the preferred format for return correspondence, the web address of the requested material and your contact information.
