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 Recreation and Parks, 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, please contact Terri Messler at 850-245-3076.

To ensure we have enough time to provide appropriate accommodation, it is best that we receive your request at least 10 working days before the scheduled event or need for the service.

Website Accessibility

This website has been constructed to provide all users with a functional, accessible and interactive Web experience.

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 use the Contact Us form and the appropriate 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.

Although a variety of access technologies are available for use with the Internet, we recommend using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 Service Pack 1 or higher to provide you with the highest level of browser accessibility. The Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) software is included with a "full" install of IE 5.0 and higher.

We recommend that users download the latest version of Adobe Reader™ to view PDF files: Version 7.0 and higher of this software is available and provides a number of features that improve access for users. For further information please visit:
