Mission Statement

The Colorado Fire Protection Association is organized to promote the requirement of quality fire protection for preservation of life and property through education of members, building designers, fire officials and building officials.


The Colorado Fire Protection Association was officially formed as an independent not for profit organization in April 1985 by Harry Nothhaft II, Eugene Crosby, James Adams, & W.A. Debus. The original purpose of the Associate was "to promote and enhance the business of manufacturing and installing automatic fire protection sprinkler systems, and the recognition of the industry as a unique identity in itself." Colorado and the fire protection industry were both growing rapidly when the Association was formed.
