Current News and
Special Announcements


At the November 9th CFFCA monthly business meeting, Fire Chief Jim Dickerson of the Lake County Office of Fire Rescue gave an informative presentation on the Central Florida Venom 2 Response Team concept. He was accompanied by Dr. Ben Abo who oversees the Venom 1 Response Team under Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. The operational concept replicates that of the Venom 1 Team and will provide for a secondary deployment site in the Central FL area under the Lake County Fire Rescue. This will provide for a much faster means for anti-venom services to area hospitals treating snake bite victims within the Central and north Florida regions.

As an add-on program, Master Deputy Don Health from the Lake County Sheriff's Office also presented an abbreviated overview of a SWOT-MEDIC training program that takes the original concept to a much higher level of operational skills and personnel credentialing.
