During February, 2016,  the Board of Directors for the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) voted to recognize South Metro Fire Rescue as an "Internationally Accredited Agency." The decision was unanimous. 

SMFR is one of only 14 accredited fire agencies in Colorado, and one of 216 agencies worldwide. 

Chief Bob Baker, Director Ronda Scholting, Deputy Chief Mike Dell'Orfano, Battalion Chief Dave Daley and Firefighter Chris Macklin, who represented Local 2164, attended the hearing and presentation.
