USFA Receives Record Number of Executive Fire Officer Program Applications

U.S. Fire Administrator Gregory B. Cade has announced that a record-setting 425 applications have been received for the incoming class, FY 2008, of the National Fire Academy's Executive Fire Officer Program (EFOP), which recently completed its selection process. From this pool, 250 were selected that will be soon scheduled for their first course. All applicants will be notified of their status by late September.

"As a graduate of the EFOP myself, I know the value of this professional development program to my own career and life," Cade said. "The fact we have received the most number of applications ever in the 22 year history of the program is a testimonial to the fact our fire and emergency services community increasingly values this program. USFA is working hard to maintain, if not increase, the quality of the EFOP experience and the associated applied research activities. We are both encouraged and challenged regarding this support of our EFOP."

Beginning in FY10, the academic prerequisite for EFOP consideration will increase from an Associate Degree to a Baccalaureate from a regionally accredited institution of higher learning. Applications for entry during FY 09 are due by June 30, 2008. For further information, visit www.usfa.dhs.gov/nfa/efop/index.shtm.
