A celebration is in order and not just because 2020 is almost over. PFA was recently accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) for the second time! As an agency, we embrace continually looking at ourselves, what we are doing, how we are doing it, and looking for ways to improve. Accreditation provides a framework to measure ourselves against national best practices. The process included the submission of a thorough risk assessment and outline of standards of cover, a site visit, and finally a public hearing before CFAI on Dec. 15th. Although accreditation is valid for five years, the work won’t stop. We will provide yearly updates to maintain our status. This ensures that we don’t just write a strategic plan, we follow it. Only around 11% of the U.S. population is protected by an accredited agency and we are happy to include the people of our jurisdiction in that number. “We are proud to be a part of this organization that works to improve the fire service in departments large and small,” said Fire Chief Tom DeMint.

💨Gale! Is that you!? It’s officially Windter time here in Colorado (see what we did there…) If you’re traveling, especially on open roads and highways, please take extra caution. ✨Focus on driving. Keep both hands on the wheel and avoid distractions so you can deal with any wind gusts that may rudely try to change your direction of travel. ✨Slow your roll. If windy conditions make you feel like your car is hurtling through the space/time continuum, reduce your speed. ✨Consider alternate routes. In addition to having slower speed limits, side roads may have more surrounding coverage to help break up the wind. ✨If you’re going north, check for road closures. We’re pretty sure Wind is the state bird of Wyoming. Stay safe and call if you need us, Fort Collins!

Wind gusts of 70 to 80 mph are forecast in the foothills, with gusts to 65 mph on the plains. A high wind warning is in effect for the foothills from noon today through noon Friday. For the rest of the plains, the warning is in effect from midnight tonight through 6 pm Thursday.
