About the Coalition

The Florida Occupant Protection Coalition (FOPC) was formed in 2017 to identify and prioritize the state’s most pressing occupant protection issues and develop a plan to maximize the state’s ability to impact crashes involving unrestrained occupants. FOPC members include representatives from agencies and organizations with a working knowledge and understanding of the various components of occupant protection and how those components interrelate.
