Biggerstaff is one of under 2,000 Chief Fire Officers in the world after completing the Commission on Professional Credentialing process.

Plano Fire-Rescue chief Chris Biggerstaff has officially earned the designation of Chief Fire Officer through an international designation program.

The voluntary program recognizes individuals who demonstrate excellence in experience, education, professional development, professional contributions, association membership, community involvement and technical competence.

Biggerstaff is now one of 1,892 Chief Fire Officers worldwide, according to the Commission on Professional Credentialing (CPC), which met on April 15 to confer the designation.

According to the CPC, the designation will last three years, requiring Biggerstaff to adhere to a strict code of professional conduct and show continued growth to keep the designation past the three-year point.

Biggerstaff has been in the fire service since 1991. He first served with the Garland Police Department, but moved to Plano Fire-Rescue shortly after in 1992. He was awarded Rookie of the Year in 1993 and Officer of the Year in 2013.
