MVFR has earned international Accreditation by the Commission on Fire Accreditation. This means that we have voluntarily agreed to meet a standard that is significantly higher than required by the State or Federal Government.
The accreditation process reflects a comprehensive self-assessment and evaluation model that enables fire and emergency service organizations to examine their service levels and performance in a way that allows them to compare 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.
Internationally, there are less than 200 departments that are recognized with this achievement. We are the first in Northern Colorado to obtain this designation.
