TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Salutes Firefighters specialty license plate was the hottest selling new plate in 2004.  In a celebration in the Capitol Courtyard, it was announced that its 10,000th license plate was sold and its $200,000 in proceeds will benefit charities throughout the state. La placa, que describe a un bombero con un fondo patriótico, fue patrocinada por los Bomberos Profesionales de la Florida. 
 
The plate, which went on sale throughout Florida last June, was ranked 38th out of a field of 91 specialty plates in 2004, according to the Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles.
 
La idea de la placa especial vino del Teniente Armand Nault del Departamento de Bomberos del Condado Palm Beach, poco después del ataque terrorista del 11 de Setiembre.  With the outpouring of community support, he thought a specialty plate would give the public an opportunity to show their support 365 days a year and help local charities at the same time.  "The money raised from the sale of each plate will be collected by the Florida Firefighter Charities and will be distributed back to eligible, local charities chosen by the firefighters where the plate was sold," said Nault.
 
La placa está disponible al público en general por $20 adicionales más $2 de tarifa de procesamiento que exige el estado. 
 
"Florida has specialty plates for many worthy causes, from child abuse prevention to wildlife conservation," said CFO/Fire Marshal Tom Gallagher.  "This new tag is a wonderful way to show the men and women of fire-rescue here in Florida and throughout the nation that we appreciate their heroic service to our communities."
 
La FPF tiene más de 19,000 miembros que incluyen bomberos, personal médico de emergencias y trabajadores forestales del estado.  El año pasado, la FPT se clasificó segunda entre los 50 estados por su contribución de $1.2 millones a la MDA (Asociación de Distrofia Muscular), simplemente una de las organizaciones de beneficencia que apoyan los bomberos.
 
Bob Carver, President of the FPF said, "The statewide license plate was designed so citizens can be proud to show their support and salute Florida's firefighters."
