Community Risk Reduction

The Bluffton Township Fire District achieved a historical milestone on October 27, 2020.  The District was awarded Accredited Agency Status by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI).  The District is one of 291 accredited agencies in the world to achieve this status.

The Accreditation model is a self-assessment and evaluation improvement model that focuses on a comprehensive examination of all characteristics of the District to understand its performance.  The process uses community-focused, data-driven, and outcome-based results to identify gaps in performance.  The process typically takes three to five years to complete.  Accreditation status is recognized as a measure of excellence within the fire service.

It is a commitment by the District’s leadership to embrace a continuous improvement model to provide the best comprehensive service it can deliver to the public.
