Fire Fighters Association of Missouri

Greetings From District 9 – 09-2018

Well it hasn’t cooled down much yet in our part of the state but the leaves are starting to get a little bit lighter in color and actually beginning to fall. A sure sign that Fall is coming soon! Time seems to be going by so fast it seems like only a couple months ago the new year was starting. Guess I’m getting old!

We are excited here at West Plains with the addition of our new training facility. We have never had such a facility that will take care of most all our training needs. We will also be able to host any NFPA 1403 certification testing if the DFS or MU FRTI has the need in south central Missouri. We welcome any of our neighboring departments to come and make use of the facility. We have 83 fire departments in our region so if you don’t mind doing a little traveling, “Come see us!”

We spent last Saturday with some of our neighboring departments raising money for the MDA Boot Drive. Thanks Howell County Rural, Lanton, Pomona, and Pumpkin Center Fire Departments for helping us raise $6545 for MDA!

Until next time, everyone please stay safe and healthy!
