Clackamas Fire Receives Fifth Consecutive Accredited Agency Status - 02/22/21

Clackamas Fire District #1 is an internationally accredited agency with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). In order to achieve this milestone, Clackamas Fire is required to meet all criteria established through CFAI’s voluntary self-assessment and accreditation program.

Clackamas Fire first became an “Internationally Accredited Agency” in 2000 and has achieved this status by the CFAI five times; with the 2020 reaccreditation process completed with unanimous approval in an accreditation hearing on Feb. 22, 2021. Since 2000, Clackamas Fire has strived to maintain international accreditation and is currently the only agency in Oregon to be accredited. In retaining this status, Clackamas Fire is one of only 280 agencies worldwide to be accredited by the CFAI and the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE). Internationally accredited agencies must submit compliance reports annually, as well as update and renew their status every five years.

According to Fire Chief Fred Charlton, “Clackamas Fire has been an accredited agency for 20-years. Considering a worldwide pandemic and the devastating wildfires, we remained focused on continuous improvement and it’s thanks to our staff for their incredible work in helping us get accredited.”

CFAI is dedicated to assisting the fire and emergency service agencies throughout the world in achieving excellence through self-assessment and accreditation in order to provide continuous quality improvement and the enhancement of service delivery to their communities. The CFAI process is voluntary and provides an agency with an improvement model to assess their service delivery and performance. An agency becomes accredited after a team of peers from other agencies evaluate their completed self-assessment, completion of an onsite assessment, and participation in a public hearing before the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.
