About accreditation 

Accreditation is about striving for excellence. “Agencies become accredited after peer review of their accreditation documents, completion of an onsite assessment, and participation in a public hearing before the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. Accreditation is valid for five years.”

Accreditation would achieve the following:

  • Formalize KFR’s process for measuring, reviewing, and acting on the data it collects to continuously improve response times, emergency services, fire prevention, education, inspections and more.
  • Establish a ‘Standards of Cover’ document that allows KFR to balance risk and resource availability in an ultimate effort to save lives and limit property damage.
  • Commit to an annual peer review of its performance.
