The Colorado Springs Fire Department holds the distinct honor to have attained accreditation from 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 and internal performance and compare them to industry best practices.
This process leads to improved service delivery by helping fire departments to:
- Determine community risk and safety needs.
- Evaluate the performance of the department.
- Establish a method for achieving continuous organizational improvement.
On February 28, 2023 the CSFD went before the CFAI and was unanimously approved for accreditation from 2023 through 2028. CSFD was initially accredited in 2013 and has maintained accredited status for over 10 years.
