Mobile Home Parks, Lodging and Recreational Vehicle Parks, Recreation and Migrant Labor Camps
The Environmental Health division of the Florida Department
of Health in Santa Rosa County (EH) performs routine
inspections at all mobile home parks, lodging and recreational vehicle parks,
and recreation camps in the State of Florida on a semi-annual basis. These
facilities must obtain an annual operating permit from the Environmental Health
division in accordance with state law.
The objective of this program is to minimize the risk of injury and illness to Florida's residents and visitors. EH is primarily concerned with the following areas:
- Ensuring the safety of drinking water supplies
- Proper disposal of sewage
- Swimming pools (where provided) that are safe and disease free
- Garbage and debris-free establishments
- Establishments that are free from harmful insects and rodent infestations
Migrant camps are inspected for sanitary food operations, and facility operation twice every other quarter by Environmental Health staff.
The EH division receives and investigates environmental health and sanitation complaints at or near these facilities. If suspected health or sanitation violations are present, please contact EH at (850) 983-5275.
