Thank You First Responders

To show appreciation for the dedication, sacrifice and service of Florida First Responders during and after Hurricane Irma, Florida State Parks is offering Florida First Responders Passes to first responders, electric utility workers and their families.

To receive your Florida First Responder Pass, visit any Florida State Park's Ranger Station or museum with your first responder identification and proof of employment.

  • These passes provide entry into any Florida State Park for first responders, electric utility workers and their families.
  • Once the pass is issued, first responders or electric utility workers are not required to be present during their family's park visits.
  • This pass provides day-use park entry for up to a total of eight people entering as a group, except at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and Weeki Wachee Springs State Park where the family pass is good for admission of up to two people, including the pass holder and provides a 33% discount at the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park.

For additional questions, please contact our Statewide Information Line at (850) 245-2157 or FSP.Feedback@dep.state.fl.us.
