KINGMAN – Assistant Fire Chief Keith Eaton will be recognized as a chief fire officer at the Fire Rescue International banquet in Texas this month.

Eaton successfully completed the “stringent criteria” required by the Commission on Professional Credentialing, said Kingman Fire Chief Jake Rhoades.

The process included as assessment of Eaton’s education, experience, professional development, technical competencies, contributions to the profession and community involvement.

“Assistant Chief Eaton has a rich knowledge of the emergency services profession and has far surpassed core competencies for personnel serving in senior fire officers positions,” said Rhoades.

There are less than 2,000 chief fire officers in the world, said Rhoades. Eaton was chosen for the designation after a comprehensive peer review.
