Palm Coast Fire Chief Becomes a CFO

Fire Chief Mike Beadle of the Palm Coast Fire Department has successfully completed the process which awarded him the professional designation of "Chief Fire Officer" (CFO).

The Commission on Professional Credentialing met on November. 6th, and officially conferred the re-designation upon Chief Beadle. Chief Beadle is now one of only 908 CFOs worldwide.

The Chief Fire Officer Designation program is a voluntary program designed to recognize individuals who demonstrate their excellence in seven measured components: Experience, Education, Professional Development, Professional Contributions, Association Membership, Community Involvement, and Technical Competencies.

Beadle received his original designation on Aug. 9, 2006. 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 designation to the Commission.

Chief Beadle has been a member of the Palm Coast Fire Department for 24 years and currently resides in Palm Coast.
