Shink, a 20-year veteran of the Naperville Fire Department, received the Fire Officer designation after completing a rigorous, months-long peer-review process. The honor reflects his qualifications in education, experience, affiliations, technical competence, community involvement, training and skill development, as well as professional contributions, recognitions and memberships.
"Captain Shink is now one of only 550 Fire Officer designees worldwide and is yet another example of the commitment to excellence exhibited by another tier of the Fire Department rank structure," Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis said. "The Naperville Fire Department has encouraged not only its chief officers, but also members of line-level supervisory staff, to obtain this high level of professional credentialing. I don't know of any other department in the nation that has as much credentialing in all of its ranks as our great department has accomplished."

Shink has been recognized internally for his contributions to the development of two important response teams. He helped create a Rescue Task Force, based at every fire station, which can enter scenes of danger and begin to provide medical care to the injured. He also assisted with the development of a highly skilled group called TEMS, or Tactical Emergency Medical Services, which is trained and equipped to join specialized police response teams in active operations at the most critical scenes, such as an active shooting.
Shink said pursuing the Fire Officer designation helped him identify his strengths and weaknesses after years of working under positive mentors who have taught him the value of continuous improvement. He has been involved with the Naperville Fire Department since 1992, when he signed up as a 14-year-old Fire Explorer, and has grown his career since, working as a Firefighter/Paramedic, Lieutenant, and now Captain.
"The Fire Officer designation is an excellent way to hallmark the knowledge gained as you progress as an officer," he said.
Puknaitis said he hopes Shink's achievement will serve as a catalyst for other Captains and Lieutenants to pursue credentialing through the Center for Public Safety Excellence and The Commission on Professional Credentialing – the same organization through which the department is accredited.

"The idea of constantly raising the bar of our service delivery to our residents is one of our core priority components within this department," Puknaitis said. "The detail represented in this accomplishment validates excellence as a Fire Officer, and I look forward to other officers following the same path."
The Fire Officer designation lasts for three years. Maintaining Fire Officer status requires recipients to show continued professional growth and community contributions, while adhering to a strict code of professional conduct.
