LSFD remains one of only nine organizations in the State of Ohio that have received Accreditated Agency status
Loveland, Ohio – The Loveland-Symmes Fire Department (LSFD) has received Accredited Agency status with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) for meeting the criteria established through the CFAI’s voluntary self-assesment and accreditation program.
LSFD is one of more than 250 agencies to achieve Internationally Accredited Agency status with the CFAI and the Center for Public Safety Excellence, Inc. (CPSE).
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 internally and then works with a team of peers from other agencies to evaluate their completed self-assessment.
“LSFD’s achievement of Accreditated Agency status demonstrates the commitment of the organization to provide the highest quality of service to our community.” said LSFD Chief Otto Huber. “We have been able to use the CFAI’s process as a proactive mechanism to plan for the future of this agency and locate areas where we can improve on the quality of services we provided.”
This recent achievement of Accreditated Agency status is the second consecutive five year period that LSFD has earned this distinction. LSFD remains one of only nine organizations in the State of Ohio that have received Accreditated Agency status.
