The Greenville City Fire Department (GCFD) has received Accredited Agency status with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). GCFD is one of only 250 agencies worldwide to achieve Internationally Acrredited Agency status with CFAI and the Center for Public Safety Excellence, Inc. Of those, GCFD is one of only 65 agencies worldwide to hold both a Class 1 ISO rating and international accreditation.


The CFAI accreditation model requires GCFD to conduct an on-going self-assessment, maintain a dynamic community driven strategic plan and maintain a standards of cover document. 


Through a series of on-going processes and adoption of this progressive model, GCFD can ensure that it is capable of providing world-class emergency services, while proactively mitigating the risks and dangers of the future.
