Benefits of Accreditation

The Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE) serves as the governing body for the organizations that offer accreditation, education, and certification services to first responders and fire service industry professionals and agencies.  The Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) is in charge of the process that represents fire and emergency service agencies around the world.  The CFAI program is a comprehensive self-assessment and evaluation model that enables fire and emergency service organizations to examine past, current, and future service levels/performance and compare them to industry best practices.  The following is a list of benefits that this process provides the department and the community it serves.
