Countryside FPD receives 4th accreditation

The Chicago Tribune wrote an article about the Countryside FPD being accredited for the fourth time.

The Countryside Fire Protection District … received accredited agency status with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) for the fourth time. Countryside first received accreditation in 1998. The district is one of only a few agencies that has been through the process four times. There are 185 accredited agencies world-wide; 13 of which are in Illinois, and have achieved International accredited agency status with the CFAI and the Center for Public Safety Excellence .

In May of this year, a peer assessment team of four evaluators visited the Countryside Fire Protection District to review their self-assessment document, operations, and practices over five days. Team leader Travis Halstead stated that “Countryside has set the bar high and reached it”.
