FFS aviation additionally provided
reconnaissance and supported search
and rescue missions. Other personnel
fulfilled critical missions such as helping evacuate nursing home residents
and providing high-water vehicle support to assist in search and rescue and
evacuation in heavily flooded areas.
In short, FFS responded anywhere Florida had a need, bringing
our resources and highly skilled, welltrained personnel to ensure lives,
homes and property were safe. In an
era where wildland fires are just one
of the many emergencies the U.S. may
encounter, the Florida Forest Service
stands ready to assist and protect citizens in myriad
ways. *
