CFAI Accreditation

On August 29th, 2019, Adams County Fire Protection District received Accredited Agency status with The Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) for meeting the criteria established through the CFAI’s voluntary self-assessment and accreditation program. Adams County Fire Protection District is one of just 250 agencies worldwide to achieve Internationally Accredited Agency status with the CFAI and the Center for Public Safety Excellence, Inc. Adams County Fire Protection District also joined just a handful accredited agencies also with an ISO rating of Class 1 in the state of Colorado.

So, what does that mean for the citizens of Adams County? It means ACFR is continuously committed to an agency wide culture of constant improvement. It means our agency is dedicated to excellence in our community by providing transparency with tangible data and information. It’s important to note the CFAI Accreditation process was voluntary, and gave our agency a chance to work with a team of peers from other agencies to help make us better.

Our Deputy Chief Stuart Sunderland said it best. “As a result of this accreditation process ACFPD has instituted practices to continually evaluate risk, which makes the agency better able to predict, prevent, and mitigate emergencies.” For more information on the accreditation process, feel free to contact our PIO Julie Browman at
