In 1989 the Divide/Florissant Fire Protection District was established as two fire departments/ one covering Divide and the other covering Florissant.

In 1999, as a result of community growth the District was split to form two Districts: the Florissant Fire Protection District and Divide Fire Protection District. This created two separate fire departments, hence the Florissant Volunteer Fire Rescue (FVFR) Department was established.
