The Department is happy to report that the Center for Public Safety Excellence's Peer Review Team has completed it's site visit as part of the Department's re-accreditation process. The team is recommending to the Commission on Fire Accreditation International that the Department be re-accredited for five additional years. The Department will appear before the Commission on January 21, 2021 for final review.
Thank you to all of you for your support and work. The accreditation process looks at every aspect of the Department, so this process is a reflection on everyone and everything that is part of our organization.
The Peer Review Team will provide a list of recommendations that the Department should consider implementing over the next five years as part of it's final report. Once those recommendations are finalized, those will be released and disseminated.
I once again would like to recognize Assistant Chief Andrew Harris, the Department's Accreditation Manager, and Administrative Coordinator Kerry Wenzel for their work and dedication to this process.
