We 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.
- 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
- Emergency services
- and more
