News and Information

Storage Tank Registration Initiative & Waiver
Period for Emergency Generators

Thumbnail of a flyer

Many facilities in Florida have added standby or backup generators to their sites to increase their emergency preparedness in the last several or more years. Many of those emergency generators are unregistered, but, have larger fuel tanks that meet the requirements for registration with the Department. The Department is undertaking an outreach initiative to provide basic information and to increase tank registrations where needed for facilities with emergency generators. For a limited time, the Department is also waiving back registration and late fees when you initially register any unregistered emergency generator tanks by June 30, 2014. For more information, please view the flyer with contact information below:
