Our standard of excellence

The Lenexa Fire Department has been awarded Accredited Agency Status by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.  

Every five years the Lenexa Fire Department participates in a formal planning process to provide focus and clarity in our pursuit of excellence. In November 2015, the department invited external stakeholders to provide information and influence in regards to community priorities and expectations, areas of concern, positive feedback, and other thoughts. The Lenexa Fire Department would like to formally thank the community members that participated in this important planning effort. The collection of external feedback was then used to guide the internal stakeholder work session conducted to establish the department's initiatives for the next five years. To view the Lenexa Fire Department 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, please refer to the Strategic Plan Document.
