Aurora Fire Chief Receives CFA Designation

Mike Garcia, the city’s fire chief, achieved professional accreditation by the Commission on Fire Accreditation’s International Chief Fire Officer Designation Program on June 2. The program was created to recognize fire officers who have demonstrated excellence and outstanding achievement throughout their career.

Achieving the designation requires having a strong educational background, diverse participation in emergency services at the local, state and national level, and demonstrated involvement in the broader community — all validated by emergency services colleagues. The Aurora Fire Department has been awarded the Accredited Agency status in 2000 and reaccreditation in 2005 and in 2010.
