Manassas fire and rescue captain receives FO international professional designation

Capt. Matthew Fox from the City of Manassas Fire and Rescue Department has been conferred a designation that only 448 others have achieved worldwide.  He has completed the process to become a Fire Officer or FO and was awarded the designation recently by the Commission on Professional Credentialing.

The Designation program is voluntary and designed to recognize firefighting professionals who demonstrate their excellence in seven measured components including experience, education, professional development, professional contributions, association membership, community involvement and technical competence. In addition, all applicants are required to identify a future professional development plan.

The FO designation program uses a comprehensive peer review model to evaluate candidates seeking the credential. The Commission on Professional Credentialing (CPC) awards the designation only after an individual successfully meets all of the organization’s stringent criteria. 

The designation is valid for three years and requires recipients to show continued growth to maintain the designation.

Achieving this designation signifies Matthew Fox’s commitment to his career in the fire and emergency services.  Capt. Fox is the first City of Manassas Fire and Rescue member to receive this designation.

The Commission on Professional Credentialing, an entity of the Center for Public Safety Excellence, Inc., consists of individuals from academia, federal and local government, and the fire and emergency medical services profession. To learn more about CPC,
