Fire department strives for continual improvement

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

In July, the Center for Public Safety Excellence presented a Self Assessment Facilitation proposal to the Los Alamos Fire Department. The self assessment process is a method in which to promote excellence within the fire service through continuous quality improvement.

The Center provides participating fire departments with a variety of mediums including two distinct programs offering agency accreditation and chief fire officer designation and other projects that enhance training, quality and information available to fire and emergency service agencies and their personnel.

The Center and its board of directors promotes and awards accreditation to fire service agencies throughout the world, when the established criteria and standards have been met or exceeded.

“Our Fire Chief Doug MacDonald served on the national accreditation committee for the Center and is very knowledgeable about the rules and requirements involved,” said Assistant Chief/Fire Marshall Michael Thompson said Friday. “We’re going to hold a meeting with stakeholders, as part of our ongoing accreditation process, to determine how our services are effective and areas we can enhance. We’re already meeting with internal departments such as human resources to review our policies and procedures.”
