TAMARAC, Fla., March 11, 2020 (Newswire.com) – On March 3 at the Center for Public Safety Excellence conference in Orlando, Tamarac Fire Rescue (TFR) received accreditation from the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI), making it the 85th fire and emergency services agency in the world to have both this designation and an ISO Class 1 rating. TFR is the fourth fire department in Broward County to receive CFAI accreditation.
The CFAI accreditation process helps fire and emergency services agencies achieve excellence through self-assessment so they can continuously improve and enhance their services. It provides a model for applicants to assess how well they perform, after which a team from other agencies evaluates their self-assessment.
“The safety of Tamarac residents and businesses is the City’s number one priority. I am extremely proud of the work done by our fire safety professionals every day in making sure Tamarac is a first-in-class community,” said Mayor Michelle J. Gomez.
