Agency Accreditation

The Fire & RCFAI Logo_2014-19_Paintescue Department is accredited through the Center for Public Safety Excellence by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). Accreditation is a comprehensive self-assessment and evaluation model that enables organizations to examine past, current, and future service levels in relation to internal performance; and then compare them to industry best practices. CFAI's philosophy of continuous organizational improvement assists fire & rescue organizations with improving the delivery of services in their local community.  Candidates for accreditation complete a strategic plan, a community risk assessment document, and a self-assessment manual of 240 performance indicators.  On completion of the documents, a peer site team visits the agency to verify compliance and makes recommendation to the commission on the disposition of the agency's application.  The CFAI commission approved the Fire & Rescue Department for accredited status on August 14, 2014.   Agency accreditation is valid for five years
