Dan Moroz of Copper Mountain Fire Department given fire marshal designation

The Copper Mountain Fire Department recently announced that Dan Moroz received the designation “fire marshal.” Moroz, a resident of Silverthorne, has worked with Copper Mountain Fire for three years.

Moroz earned the designation from the Commission on Professional Credentialing on Feb. 10 in recognition of his career and educational accomplishments in the field. He is one of 88 individuals nationwide who have received the fire marshal designation.

“It gauges the expertise of the fire marshal. They are reviewed by other fire marshals around the nation,” said Copper Mountain Fire chief Gary Curmode.

To receive the designation, candidates must meet a strict series of requirements, including presenting a portfolio of their education, work experience, professional development, technical competency, contributions to the profession and community involvement.

Candidates must also outline a professional development plan for the future.

The CPC then uses a peer-review model in which federal and local government leaders and academics evaluate the candidates. The fire marshal credential was introduced by the CPC in 2011.

“It’s tough to achieve. He’ll have to renew it every three years,” Curmode said. “But Dan will do it. He’s very progressive for the county; we’re lucky to have him.”
