Fire Chief/Emergency Management Director Robert Moran has successfully completed a certification process that awards him the professional designation of “Chief Fire Officer” (CFO). The Commission on Professional Credentialing met on February 4, 2014 to officially confer the re-designation upon Chief Moran who is one of only 956 CFO’s worldwide.
The Chief Fire Officer Designation program is a voluntary program designed to recognize individuals who demonstrate their excellence in seven measured components including; Experience, Education, Professional Development, Professional Contributions, Association Membership, Community Involvement, and Technical Competencies. Chief Moran received his original designation in November of 2007. To maintain the designation, individuals need to show they have continued to develop as a CFO in four areas: Professional Development, Professional Contributions, Active Association membership, and Community Involvement.
A Board of Review consisting of members of the fire and emergency services profession, academia, and municipal agencies review each application and recommends successful candidates for re-designation. Chief Moran has served as Chief of the Brewster Fire Department since October of 2010.
