Calls Per Year
The Huntley Fire Protection District attained the distinguished Accreditation Status through the Commission Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). The CFAI program, among other things, provides an excellent self-assessment and peer review process for the Huntley Fire Protection District and other fire and rescue agencies across the United States.
Accreditation is a way to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of a fire department by determining community risks and fire safety needs, accurately evaluating the organization’s performance, and providing a method for continuous improvement. Measuring professionalism and service delivery of fire and emergency services is a new concept for most departments.
The recognition as an Accredited Agency demonstrates the Fire Department’s professionalism, excellence in organizational development and strong commitment to providing outstanding fire and emergency services to our citizens.
Most importantly, becoming an accredited fire agency allows us to enhance our quality improvement processes and continue providing the highest level of fire and rescue services to the community that the Huntley Fire Protection District protects.
