Florida Department of Environmental Protection Accessibility Policy
Home » 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 the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). For persons with a disability requesting an accommodation for a DEP program, activity, employment and/or service, other than State Parks, please contact Geraldine Austin at 850-245-2522 or Geraldine.Austin@dep.state.fl.us. For State Parks programs, activities and/or other service, please call 850-245-2157. Visit the Florida State Parks website to learn more about the Division of Recreation and Parks’ Accessibility and Inclusion Policy.
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.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's web designers and developers make every effort to provide their users with accessible information in a format that is equally available to all individuals. In designing and creating its website, DEP 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 website material interferes with your ability to access the information, contact us at 850-245-7555, and the appropriate staff member responsible for the specific webpage 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. We recommend that users download the latest version of Adobe Reader™ to view PDF files. For more information, please visit http://www.adobe.com/accessibility.html.
