The Department is seeking re-accredited status from the Center for Public Safety Excellence's Commission on Fire Accreditation International. The Department is one of 281 fire department's world-wide that hold accredited status currently.
A peer review team representing the Commission on Fire Accreditation International will be visiting the Department November 15 through the 19.
The Department was initially accredited in 2015. Department's must seek to become re-accredited every five years. Agencies become accredited after peer review of their accreditation documents, completion of an onsite assessment, and participation in a public hearing before the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.
Special thanks to all of our members who have prepared for this visit and our participation in the re-accreditation process. Special acknowledgement to Assistant Chief Andrew Harris, the Department's Accreditation Manager, and Administrative Coordinator Kerry Wenzel for their work and dedication.
