Statement by Florida Fire Marshal Tom Gallagher

TALLAHASSEE – In June, Florida State Fire Marshal Tom Gallagher announced several initiatives to assist local law enforcement and first responders throughout the state in the fight against the spread of meth. Today, Fire Marshal Gallagher applauded the Bush Administration for increasing Federal Assistance to states dealing with the spread of meth.
 
 "I appreciate the Bush Administration's assistance in helping states like Florida fight the spread of meth."
 
"Throughout my career as Florida's Fire Marshal, I have never witnessed a greater threat to our firefighters, our first responders and our communities than the current scourge of meth spreading throughout our state."
 
"We have to attack meth with every possible resource, and from every possible direction. Stiffer penalties, more aggressive prosecution, increased education and intensive rehabilitation must all be part of any solution to Florida's growing meth problem."
 
"Today's action by the Bush Administration is a positive step to help our efforts to fight meth here in Florida, but the solution to Florida's meth problems must begin at home."
