Executive Chief Fire Officer Program

The Executive Chief Fire Officer (ECFO) is a professional designation that acknowledges the professional conduct, training, education and skills in a number of competencies required as a leader in today’s fire service.


The ECFO program has replaced the Chief Fire Officers (CFO) program and is available to all members of the CAFC.  You can see a list of CFO and ECFO designees here.  


The heart of the program consists of a number of competencies within seven important themes related to management within the fire service. The themes are: 



     Human Resources


     Business Acumen


     Fire Prevention 

     Fire Technical 


As well, a new component of the ECFO Program is an annual maintenance requirement, with the intent to ensure an ECFO is contributing to the fire service and staying apprised of changes within the industry.


To learn more about the EFCO program, you can read the handbook or view this slide deck. Please note that you must be in a Chief Fire Officer position to hold the ECFO designation.
