Accreditation: What’s in It for Us?
More and more fire departments are seeking accreditation from the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE). Paramedic training programs require accreditation for CAAHEP. However, the accreditation of fire departments and paramedic programs is typically performed without the direct involvement or knowledge of IAFF affiliates. It is imperative that IAFF local leaders understand the importance of accreditation in order to help shape the future of the fire service. This information session will discuss why involvement matters.
