From the Beginning, MAFPD Was To Be Different.

Many organizations then, and still, exist to serve the general needs of Missouri’s emergency services agencies, but no organizations specifically worked to help fire districts cope with their special problems as political subdivisions of the State of Missouri. No one was offering help on dealing with rural water supply districts, municipal annexation gobbling up prime sections of fire districts, alternative funding for fire districts, updates on state and federal regulations, group purchasing and training for newly elected board members. More importantly, Missouri’s fire districts did not have a unified and strong voice in the state legislative process. That was until 1990.  

The Missouri Association of Fire Protection Districts (MAFPD) was born of necessity on February 11, 1990, to meet the unique needs of fire protection districts in the State of Missouri. The Association’s Mission is to represent and support Missouri Fire Protection Districts by providing a centralized source of information, training, education, and leadership that enhances each fire protection district's ability to fulfill their mission.

Testimonials

“We were faced with some issues that made annexation into our district more difficult. At the annual legislative meeting, I asked the MAFPD to work on the annexation issue. The following spring, the law was changed for all Missouri fire districts. If that’s not action I don’t know what is."

James R. Gann, Past-President
