Fire Accreditation LogoWe are proud to be an accredited Fire Department by the Commission on Fire Service Accreditation International (CFAI). This was a four year project and has made us a stronger, more data driven organization. We also received an independent, third party review that validates the things we are doing well and deficiencies we need to address.

Accreditation Process

  • A minimum of three years of accurate response time data is used to create a Standard of Cover (SOC).
  • Develop a Strategic Plan.
  • Develop a community risk analysis.
  • Develop a self-assessment document.

The community risk analysis determines if the number of apparatus and personnel our dispatch sends to an incident are appropriately matched to the level of risk. The self-assessment document is a 360 degree review of internal processes to ensure we are following best practices across 253 performance indicators.

The end result is a turnkey manual that grades the agency in areas such as:

  • Human resources
  • Assessment and planning
  • Training
  • Competency
  • Emergency services
  • and more
