Today and tomorrow will be warm and breezy but still nice days to enjoy outdoor activities...except burning, maybe don't do that! Saturday evening there will be the chance for a few strong to severe storms. The main threat will be damaging winds but quarter-sized hail and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.


Citizens, please call in your controlled burns to Higginsville Central Dispatch on the non emergency phone number ! 660-584-2104 By not reporting your controlled burns you are adding the unnecessary risk to firefighters, law enforcement, and ambulance personnel who are responding to fires that are not emergencies. A single phone call will help prevent our dispatch center from sending responders out for no reason. Also, if you are having a controlled burn, stay with the fire until it's completely burned out. Annually, the fire department is sent to several unreported controlled burns that passing motorist, neighbors, or others call in as an emergency. As always, thank you for your support !

No outdoor burning today!

If you see a vehicle with caution tape or an orange sticker - it has been checked on by law enforcement. Road conditions continue to deteriorate across the state. Please do not travel unless absolutely necessary.

Prayers for the Boone County Fire Protection District!

It is with great sadness that I announce that Boone County Fire Protection District Assistant Chief Bryant Gladney was killed today while on the scene of an early morning vehicle accident on Interstate 70 westbound at mile marker 135.4 east of Columbia, MO near Route Z.

Assistant Chief Bryant Gladney, other Boone County Fire District units and a University Ambulance were on the scene of the original accident involving a large commercial truck on its side at 4:33 am. While crews were working the accident scene, a westbound truck hit Assistant Chief Gladney’s vehicle at a high rate of speed and then struck the University Hospital Ambulance and the original truck involved. Crews on scene were able to quickly extricate Assistant Chief Gladney from his vehicle and transport him to the University Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. No other first responders on the scene were injured.

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

It's dry and windy.


🚫🔥 Any outdoor burning is highly discouraged today.

Strong winds and very dry conditions will result in dangerous fire conditions today, and any fire that ignites will be able to spread very quickly.


Daylight Saving Time is the perfect reminder to check your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Test your alarms to ensure they are working properly, change the batteries and replace if they are over 10 years old.


It's a for the KC area:

1) Very high to extreme fire weather danger is expected today.

2) A Wind Advisory is in effect from 7AM-6PM for SSW wind gusts up to 50 mph.

3) Severe weather will be possible tonight (after 7PM) with large hail the main threat.

Reminder NO BURNING!!!

Reminder NO BURNING!!!

It will be a warm and breezy day...good for a lot of outdoor activities but, burning will not be one of them! Temperatures this afternoon will rise into the upper 60s and lower 70s with humidity values falling into the upper teens and lower 20s percent range. Combining the dry conditions with southerly wind gusts 30 to 35 mph will create very high fire danger conditions this afternoon. As such a Red Flag Warning is in effect from noon through 6PM. Please avoid all burning.


Elevated fire 🔥 danger is expected Sunday afternoon. The greatest chance for fires to get out of control will be across portions of central/northeast Missouri where winds will be from the southwest at 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph, relative humidity will be 25 to 30 percent, and fuel moisture will be low. Please be careful and consider moving any planned burns to a different day.

Many have asked how they can help our injured 1st Captain, Jake Hayward and his family. Michelle's Place, a restaurant, in Mayview, MO is designated as a drop-off point for gas cards, Visa gift cards, etc. to assist the Hayward family in travel and expenses related to driving back and forth to Kansas City. At this time we are thankful to report that Jake is stable, but still in critical condition. He has a long road ahead and I am confident our fire family and our entire community will do whatever we can to help every step of the way. We appreciate your continued calls, messages and offers to help during this difficult time. Please keep the entire Mayview Fire Protection District and our community in your thoughts and prayers. Please feel free to share this post with others who may be inquiring about how to help.
Thanks Randy Amor for coming out today to the Cub Scout day camp the kids had a blast
