THE CENTER FOR PUBLIC SAFETY EXCELLENCE CONFERS THE DESIGNATION OF CHIEF FIRE OFFICER ON NORTH MYRTLE BEACH FIRE CHIEF GARRY SPAIN
The Commission on Professional Credentialing (CPC), associated with the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE), has conferred the designation of Chief Fire Officer (CFO) on North Myrtle Beach Fire Chief Garry Spain. Chief Spain is one of 1,519 CFOs worldwide.
The voluntary program recognizes individuals who demonstrate their continued excellence in the seven measured components of experience, education, professional development, professional contributions, association membership, community involvement, and technical competence. Additionally, applicants are required to identify a future professional development plan.
The CFO designation program uses a comprehensive peer review model to evaluate candidates seeking the CFO credential. The Commission on Professional Credentialing, comprised of individuals from federal and local governments, academia, and the fire and emergency medical services profession, awards the CFO designation only after an individual successfully meets all of the organization’s stringent criteria.
Achieving this certification signifies Chief Spain’s continued commitment to his career in the fire and emergency services.
The CFO designation is valid for three years. Maintaining the designation into the future requires the recipient to show continued growth in the areas of professional development, professional contributions, active association membership, and community involvement. The recipient must also adhere to a strict code of professional conduct.
We congratulate Chief Spain on his continued dedication to North Myrtle Beach and his commitment to professional excellence.
