I am honored to be the President of the Florida State Firefighters Association; I have been a member for over 25 years and an have had the pleasure of serving as an officer for the past 15 years.

I am active with many other fire service organizations as well. I believe it is time for the FSFA to be at the center of bringing together many of these groups that have a common interest in the fire service for the benefit of all and the advancement of tradition and brotherhood in the Florida Fire Service, today, tomorrow and for the future.

The Florida State Firefighters Association has been in existence since 1925 with our Headquarters in Avon Park. I invite everyone to visit to find out all the latest information and events in the State. Start making plans to attend the 2011 Convention and Championship Competition hosted by the Estero and San Carlos Park Firefighters at the Bass Pro Shop on June 8th-11th. Please visit the web site for updates and current events.

Stay Safe, Michael Taussig
