Frequently Asked Questions


What is, Inc.
(Cops and Firefighters with Businesses)?

CFB is the Nation’s Largest FREE Business Referral Network for active and retired First Responders (including Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, Paramedics, Corrections, etc.) and their spouses that own or operate businesses outside of their public service careers.


Is it really FREE?

Yes, www.CFBnetwork.comis 100% FREE. We do plan to offer premium listings in the near future.  We have advertising opportunities for ads in flyers that we distribute as well as banner ads on the website.


If my spouse owns a business, can it be listed on the website?

The answer is YES! Our goal is to help build the financial stability for you and your family while offering outstanding products and services to our brotherhood and to the community. We encourage the involvement of your spouse in our network.


What if I'm not the owner of the business, but I am an employee or run the business?  For example a car salesman or a driving instructor for a driving school?

As long as you fit our profile of a First Responder and this business is what you currently do for a living or to supplement your income, your business will be approved!


Why use businesses listed on the CFB Network?

Police Officers, Firefighters, Paramedics, FBI Agents, etc. are typically individuals of high integrity. They are only hired after extensive background checks including both criminal and civil investigations. You trust them as your partners, and you trust them with your life; why not trust them in their business?


How is it possible that businesses can advertise for FREE?

A few years after retiring from the City of Miami Beach Police Department (due to an on-the-job injury), Dean Adler entered the mortgage industry. When the network was originally formed in 2000, Dean decided to fund the project through his personal income as a Mortgage Loan Originator specializing in residential mortgages for purchases and refinances.


Is the CFB Network open for the public to locate products and services?

Yes, it is our goal to promote the CFB Businesses to other First Responders as well as to the general public.


What should I do if I need help during or after the registration process?

Contact Ana Adler by email at or call her at (954) 838-0084


Why add so many Keywords?

One of the most important steps in the registration process is to enter as many “keywords” as possible to describe your business. This is the best tool to search for a product or service.  If your company name is A-Z Painiting and your name is John Doe, your keywords should be something like:  a-z, a-z painting, john, john doe, doe, painting, paint, interior painting, exterior painting, pressure clean, pressure wash, paint houses, house painting, residential painting, painter,  
Make sure you use a comma (,) after every keyword.
