The Cherokee Pass Volunteer Fire Department was organized in the late 1950's to early 1960's. Our department consists of 25 volunteer personnel and is governed by a board of trustees. Our jurisdiction consists of approximately 375 square miles, including approximately 80,000 acres of Federal land. This includes residential properties, farm lands, and recreational areas. The Cherokee Pass Fire Depa

rtment maintains three fire stations located in Cherokee Pass, just east of Fredericktown, and Roselle. We also maintain three pumper trucks, three tanker trucks, two brush trucks, a rescue truck, and a water shuttling vehicle. We primarily haul and shuttle our own water for fire suppression as fire hydrants are not available throughout most of our covered area. Our department is not supported by a tax base and does not receive any routine federal or state monies. Our primary operating funds is derived from memberships purchased by property owners within our jurisdiction.

Most of Missouri is under a heat advisory and portions of the Bootheel under an excessive heat warning with heat index values expected to reach 110 degrees or higher both days. Heat and humidity are a dangerous combination and can quickly create a serious situation. Drink plenty of water, limit your time outside and stay safe! 🥵

Sorry, due to liability reasons, the Cherokee Pass Fire Protection District does not fill swimming pools. The water transported in our trucks often is pulled from natural sources such as rivers, creeks or ponds. This type of water, dirty and containing debris, is often damaging to pools and pumps. Again, sorry we are unable to provide this service.

Cherokee Pass Fire Protection District recently equipped our apparatus with Safety Cloud®, a collision prevention service
that connects our emergency lights and sirens with navigation applications and systems. Fredericktown drivers can now
receive advance warning digital alerts through popular navigation apps like Waze and Apple Maps whenever they
approach our apparatus while our emergency lights are engaged. These alerts are designed to give drivers more time to
safely comply with Missouri’s Move Over law, which requires motorists to slow down and move over a lane when
approaching vehicles with flashing or rotating lights. You can use the Waze app or Apple Maps for free on most mobile
devices or through the infotainment systems of many newer-model vehicles using FordSync, Apple CarPlay, and Android
Auto. Safety Cloud alerts are also now available on newer models of Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Chrysler and Alfa Romeo
vehicles, and the alerts are coming to more vehicle brands soon. When you see our apparatus in the field, please
remember to safely obey all traffic laws to ensure that everyone - including our firefighters - gets home safely.
