Adam Poirrier Completes Chief Fire Officer Designation Process


St. Pete Beach— 8/20/2021 — District Chief Adam Poirrier has completed the international professional designation process for Chief Fire Officer (CFO) through the Center for Public Safety Excellence. The Commission on Professional Credentialing (CPC) met on August 3rd, 2021, to confer the designation.  District Chief Poirrier becomes one of only 1,554 CFOs worldwide.

The designation program is a voluntary program designed to recognize individuals who demonstrate excellence in seven categories including experience, education, professional development, professional contributions, association membership, community involvement, and technical competence. Additionally, applicants must create a future professional development plan. The CFO designation program uses a comprehensive peer review model to evaluate candidates.  

The CPC awards the designation, which is valid for three years, when an individual successfully meets all the organization's stringent criteria. Maintaining the designation requires recipients to show continued growth in the areas originally assessed as well as adhere to a strict code of professional conduct. 

St. Pete Beach Mayor Al Johnson lauded District Chief Poirrier’s commitment to serving the people of St. Pete Beach. He said, “We congratulate District Chief Poirrier on attaining this elite designation. His hard work is to be commended and represents our area well. Every day he leads by example and the City of St. Pete Beach is a better place because of it. As one of only 1,554 people in the world with this designation, his leadership and demonstrated abilities are now being recognized on the level that he deserves. 

Congratulations, District Chief Poirrier.”
