Howell County Rural Fire District Update

We would like to recognize all our officers from the oldest to the newest. Pictured here on the front row are Fire Chief Joe Auffert and Assistant Chief William Wilbanks. On the back row are Safety Officers Wesley Hendricks, Jerry Lewis, and Tim Dailey. All three safety officers were promoted from firefighter to safety officer within the last six months. All of our officers are very dedicated to the fire department and work very hard to maintain as safe of an environment as possible on all incidents we respond to and at the fire station.

Howell County Rural Fire District #1 recently donated $350 to Cystic Fibrosis. We usually help out at the concerts they have every year for a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis research. This year they were unable to host the concert again due to COVID. We would like to challenge all emergency service organizations in Missouri or any individual that can to donate something if possible. Every little bit donated helps out and it all goes to Cystic Fibrosis research to help find a cure for that disease someday.
