PFA was established in 1981 through an Intergovernmental Agreement (updated in 2014) between the City of Fort Collins and Poudre Valley Fire Protection District (PVFPD). The goal was to improve fire and rescue services by improving response times to emergencies; and to eliminate duplicate services, thereby reducing costs to both the taxpayers of Fort Collins and the Poudre Valley Fire Protection District.
The Intergovernmental Agreement outlines PFA's funding through a revenue-allocation formula. The City of Fort Collins contributes a portion of sales and use tax, property taxes, and the voter-approved "Keep Fort Collins Great" tax measure, as of 2018. The PVFPD contributes its mill levy (property tax) revenue, as well as pass-through Tax Increment Financing from a partnership with the Town of Timnath.
A five-person Board of Directors, composed of elected members from the PVFPD Board and the Fort Collins City Council, governs PFA. Both the PVFPD Board and City Council appoint two members to serve on the PFA Board of Directors. The fifth member of the PFA Board is appointed by these four members and has historically been the Fort Collins City Manager.
Meetings are held in the conference room at PFA Headquarters at 102 Remington Street at 8:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
