The International Fire Service Accreditation Congress (IFSAC) is proud to announce that past chairman Tim Bradley of the North Carolina Office of State Fire Marshal has been recognized by the Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) in Gloucestershire, England, as being named a “Fellow” for his work in the fire service and more specifically on International Fire Service Accreditation. The IFE has a worldwide membership that measures above 10,000 but since its inception in 1918 have recognized less than 200 “Fellows” internationally.
Mr. Bradley coauthored a paper with Dr. Robin Willis Lee from the Fire Service College in Moreton Marsh England on Accreditation of Fire Service Training and Education Internationally.
Mr. Bradley states, “I felt truly honored to receive this designation from such a prestigious group, especially since it was based on efforts toward accrediting fire and rescue education efforts internationally. I think IFSAC and the IFE can work together to further that goal in the future.”
Mr. Bradley has been in the fire service for more than 36 years. He currently serves as Senior Deputy Commissioner of Insurance in charge of the Office of State Fire Marshal in North Carolina. Mr. Bradley also chaired the NFPA Professional Qualification Committee for Fire Instructor for 15 years and served as Chairman of the Board of Governors for IFSAC for the past 14 years. Mr. Bradley now caries the designation FIFireE.
