Rules for Missouri Fire Protection Districts
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A general law dating back to the mid-1900s authorized the formation of fire protection districts in Missouri. The purpose of fire protection districts is to "supply protection by any available means to persons and property against injuries and damage from fire and from hazards which do or may cause fire" (321.010). Districts have been further empowered "to render first aid for the purpose of savings lives, and to give assistance in the event of an accident or emergency of any kind" (321.010).
