MAFPD: Supporting Missouri Firefighters, Fire Districts, and Uplifting Fire Services Since 1990
In February 1990, MAFPD was created to meet the unique needs of fire protection districts in Missouri.
While many organizations throughout Missouri existed to serve the general needs of Missouri’s emergency service agencies, MAFPD was the first to specifically help firefighters and their fire districts throughout the state.
The association’s mission is to represent and support Missouri fire districts by providing a centralized source of information, training, education, and leadership that enhances each fire protection district's ability to fulfill its mission.
Training & Educational Opportunities
Training is a convenient and affordable way to improve and revise procedures and policies and review matters affecting fire protection districts—certified fire director training programs. Plus, discounted training rates for members.
We provide focus, representation, and visibility for the MAFPD in advocating state and federal legislative issues. Knowing and connecting with elected representatives is imperative to ensure they are aware of the issues the fire and emergency services face.
Information sharing and networking with other fire protection districts in the state.
Annual meetings, conferences, and educational seminars for administrators, board members, and attorneys.
Our unified stance on issues and actions related to the fire protection district greatly impacts the state and national levels

“MAFPD is not a social organization, it is geared to answer the needs of every Fire District of Missouri, regardless of the size through education and networking.”
Mike Scott, Past-President Logan Rogersville Fire Protection District
“MAFPD has made our jobs as board members much easier by keeping us abreast of current statutes and any changes with which we need to comply. Being located in a rural area where fire protection districts are an unfamiliar entity, MAFPD has helped us clarify our position in several areas and is a GREAT source of information.”
J. Carl Shaw, President Deer Creek Fire Protection District
“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
Cooper County Fire Protection District
“MAFPD is the best place to get education for Board and Staff members, about the operations of Fire Protection Districts.”
Richard E. Stirts, Jr., Fire Chief Logan Rogersville Fire Protection District
