COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - City officials in Columbus have approved a 45-page statement of standards that puts the fire department a step closer to gaining national accreditation.

WCBI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1fyJSLFs ) the document includes long-range and near-term operational and budget goals.

The report was more than 3 years in the making and was reviewed by a national fire accreditation team in fall 2013.

The national board is expected to make a final decision in March.

If approved, Columbus would be one of fewer than 200 communities nationwide to achieve national accreditation.
