What is a Regional Fire Authority?
A Regional Fire Authority (RFA) is a special purpose district established by voters in a service area that provides funding for fire and medical emergency services. An RFA can be made up of cities, fire districts or a combination of the two. View the RFA plan document.
An RFA is created by vote of the people in the proposed service area. Together, voters in Renton and FD #25 approved the creation and funding of the Renton RFA by more than the required 60% majority. In Washington state, there are now ten RFAs, including three in south King County.
