64J-1.010: Voluntary Inactive Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on January 15, 2009, the Florida Department of Health, Division of Emergency Medical Operations, Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, received a petition for waiver from paragraph 64J-1.010(3)(d), Florida Administrative Code, from Sean Hessel.
Nature of Rule: Requires a paramedic whose certificate has been on inactive status for more than 1 year to pass the paramedic certification examination as one of the requirements for activating his or her certificate.
The petitioner mistakenly checked the “voluntary inactive” box on his 2006-2008 renewal form and was not notified by his employer or the Department that his license was in an inactive status. Therefore, he is requesting a waiver of this rule requirement.
All comments and requests for copies of the petitions must be received in writing by February 13, 2009.
A copy of the Petition for Variance or Waiver may be obtained by contacting: Alexander Macy, Administrative Assistant, Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin #C18, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1738, Fax (850)488-9408, email
