Our organization is dedicated to the safety and security of Florida’s children, consumers, and businesses.  CFF has targeted five areas of public policy that are all too often restricted to separate “silos.” We believe these are the five pillars of Florida’s future.  The first pillar is revitalizing Florida’s economy.  Without a home and a source of income, no family can be considered “secure.”  The second pillar is consumer safety, including food, Quotedrugs, alcohol, toys, All Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s), and other products used in and around the home.  Our third pillar is homeland security, including protecting Florida’s ports, rail, and tourist attractions from homegrown radical Jihadism and “lone wolf” acts of politically motivated violence.  A fourth pillar is disaster preparedness, which in Florida is most often a response to hurricanes but can also include, wildfires, tornados and other dangerous events. The final pillar is personal responsibility.  This includes keeping our bodies and minds healthy through proactive steps such as eating well, but also not engaging in activity that would endanger ourselves, our families or others.  Such activities we seek to discourage include the useMembership of illegal drugs, inappropriate use of prescription medication, combining prescription drugs with alcohol, underage drinking, and drinking and driving.



The safety and security of Florida’s citizens could be enhanced by an innovative new program directed at reducing drunk driving. The 24/7 Program, promoted by, among others, South Dakota Attorney General Larry Long, takes a unique new approach by telling drunk drivers, “If you drinkauto crash and drive, we’ll make you stop drinking.” This is a program that treats both the symptoms and the disease. Because the safety and security of our families, coworkers and friends relies on safe highwaysl, Citizens for Florida’s Future is working with Florida’s policymakers to promote this program. Below are excerpts from General Long’s article on the 24/7 Program. Read More . . . .
