Fire Chief Anthony P. Stravino was among 983 fire chiefs from around the world recognized for receiving the Chief Fire Officer (CFO) designation this month in Texas.

The Center for Public Safety Excellence’s Commission on Professional Credentialing met on May 6, 2014 and conferred the re-designation of CFO for Chief Stravino and other chiefs from around the world. All recipients were acknowledged at the Fire Rescue International 2014 conference in Dallas, Texas.

The CFO 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 Stravino received his initial CFO designation in March, 2008. This marks his second consecutive re-designation. To maintain the designation, individuals need to show continued development in four areas. They are professional development, professional contributions, active association membership and community involvement. A review board comprised of fire and emergency services professionals, academia and municipal agencies review each applicant and recommend those who’ve met the criteria for designation to the commission.

Stravino has been executive director and fire chief for Broward Sheriff’s Office Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Services since 2012. Prior to that, the 30-plus year fire service veteran served as fire chief of Margate-Coconut Creek, Longwood and Deerfield Beach fire rescue departments.
