On February 10, 2015, Westmont Fire Chief David Weiss was re-designated as a Chief Fire Officer (CFO) by the Commission on Professional Credentialing. This designation, which is the highest level of certification for Fire Department personnel, will be valid for a period of three years. The CFO designation is evaluated in four areas: Professional Development, Professional Contributions, Active Association Membership, and Community Involvement.
“We want to congratulate Chief Weiss for earning this designation,” says Village Trustee and Public Safety Committee Chair Steve Nero. “It’s my understanding that Chief Weiss has now held this designation for 15 years, which means our citizens have been well-served having personnel who are so highly trained and prepared to serve our community.”
“Chief Weiss first earned the credential in 2003,” says Debbie Sobotka, Deputy Director for the Center for Public Safety Excellence, which awards the designation. “He is entrenched in the CPC model of continuous improvement. This is quite an honor.”
The Village congratulates Chief Weiss on this recent accomplishment and thanks him for his dedication to excellence.
