Covington Fire Chief Don T. Floyd was awarded the professional designation of Chief Fire Officer after completing the required assessments. The Commission on Professional Credentialing met on March 9 to confer officially the re-designation on Floyd, who is only one of 630 CFO’s worldwide.
The Chief Fire Officer Designation is a voluntary program designed to recognize individuals who demonstrate their excellence in seven measured components including experience, education, professional development, professional contributions, association memberships, community involvement and technical competencies. Floyd received his original designation in August 2003. 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.
Floyd has been a member of the Covington Fire Department for 37 years.
