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.
