In March of 2013, MCAS Cherry Point Fire & Emergency Services became internationally accredited, commensurable with the requirements of the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.

The department did receive re-accreditation status in March of 2018. Personnel will continue the self-assessment process to ensure the best services possible are being delivered to the community.
