"There are people who bring a light so great to the world that even after they are gone, the light remains." Our fallen firefighter, Jeff Sanders was one of those people. A lot has changed since that day 4 years ago, but his light remains. During every call, during every training, on the good days and the bad, Jeff's light and love for helping others will always shine on in our hearts and in the work that we do. Please keep Jeff's family, friends and fellow firefighters in your thoughts today. Maybe give someone a hug or lend a helping hand... let's help Jeff's light shine a little brighter today and every day! ❤

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.

Please don't burn in these conditions!

Please don't burn in these conditions!

***POST IS OUTDATED***
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.

After assisting neighboring departments with multiple fatality fires in less than a week's time, the MFPD would like to remind everyone again to please make sure you have smoke detectors installed and please make sure they are in working order. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families who have lost loved ones in these tragic fires and we send our thanks to all the hardworking firefighters and first responders who have been working these tough calls in extremely cold conditions.

For firefighters and first responders all across the nation, 2020 has been a year of uncertainty and worry full of challenges and change. But there is one thing that will never waver-- the brotherhood and camaraderie among firefighters. The MFPD was reminded of this when a larger metro-area department recently sent a truckload of donated air packs to our station. Also known as SCBAs (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus), these are one of the most important pieces of safety gear worn by firefighters. The portable air tanks allow firefighters to breathe clean normal temperature air while fighting fire. If the district were to purchase these packs brand new for our 14 volunteer firefighters, each one would cost more than $9,000. Although the donated packs are not brand new, they are certified and each of our volunteers now has an up-to-date, more versatile and safer piece of equipment that allows them to better serve our constituents in times of distress. There were enough packs in this donation to also assist another small rural department in the county. There is no better example of the Missouri State Fire Marshal Tim Bean's favorite saying-- "Neighbors Helping Neighbors". The MFPD is incredibly thankful for this donation and we consider it a privilege and honor to be part of the family that is the fire service.

Special thanks to Erik and Shaun with Texas Fire Trucks for their superior customer service while assisting the MFPD through the process of selecting and purchasing a new fire engine. MFPD Chief Kris White and Assistant Chief Jeff Ryun picked up the 2000 Spartan Pumper on Friday. The unit comes to Mayview from the Pasadena, TX Fire Department--the largest all-volunteer department in the nation. MFPD's volunteers put in a long day today getting the truck ready and it has officially been put into service. This engine is a safer and more efficient unit that will enable our volunteer firefighters to provide a higher level of service to the citizens we serve.

12/15/2020

As of today, the volunteer firefighters of the Mayview Fire Protection District have answered a record-breaking 135 calls for service in 2020. In 2019, MFPD responded to approximately 90 calls. In 2018, it was around 80 calls. Prior to that, it was an average of less than 60 calls per year. From structure fires to motor vehicle accidents, to EMS assists and everything in between, our dedicated volunteers are answering more calls than ever before. They don't do it for the recognition, but we want to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to each and every one of them for their outstanding service to our community. #neighborshelpingneighbors

On July 20th, 2020 at approximately 1:00am, MFPD volunteer firefighters along with Higginsville EMS were dispatched to a single-vehicle accident at west bound I-70, mile marker 45.4.

Jeff Sanders faithfully put up the American flags around Mayview for holidays and community celebrations for years. Today, on the third anniversary of the line of duty accident that claimed his life, we put them up for him. Today we remember. Today we honor. Today we celebrate the life of our fallen hero. Please keep Jeff's family and fellow firefighters in your thoughts and prayers today. This evening we invite Jeff's family and friends to join us on the patio at the Old School Store & Bar for a "Heroes Happy Hour" from 6pm-8pm The Bar is serving a free-will donation meal while supplies last. All proceeds will go to Supporting Heroes-- an organization that honors the service and sacrifice of public safety heroes who gave their lives in the line of duty by caring for the loved ones they leave behind. The donation will be sent in memory of Firefighter Jeff Sanders.

05/27/2020

In May 2019, the City of Odessa notified the Mayview Fire Protection District (MFPD) that on June 1st, 2020, the Odessa Fire and Rescue Protection District (OFRPD) would discontinue Emergency Medical Service (EMS) to a portion of the Mayview fire district previously served by Odessa’s ambulance for more than 25 years.

Through a series of correspondence, the OFRPD proposed continuing service if the MFPD agreed to pay a fee of $2,000 per year, and in addition, stipulated that Odessa Fire would continue charging residents who live in the impacted area as non-residents for EMS service.

The Mayview Fire Protection District was established by a vote of the people to provide fire protection service not EMS service. Furthermore, with one of the smallest operating budgets in the county, the MFPD Board of Directors opted to explore alternative EMS options for the constituents of their fire district impacted by Odessa’s discontinuation of service.

As of May 18th, 2020, the Cities of Higginsville and Lexington passed ordinances to expand their existing EMS service coverage areas within the Mayview Fire Protection District. Beginning, May 31st, 2020 at 11:59pm, their respective EMS agencies will provide coverage to the impacted area (see map) previously served by Odessa. The residents of the impacted area will continue to be charged as non-residents by these entities as they always have. However, there are no additional fees involved in either agreement.

The map below illustrates the impacted area. The lime green area will be covered by Higginsville EMS. The dark red area will be covered by Lexington EMS.

On the afternoon of Sunday, March 29th, MFPD responded mutual aid to a structure/house fire in rural Odessa. MFPD sent Engine 1 and Tanker 1 with a crew of 8 firefighters. Thankfully, the family got out safe and no one was injured. Another good example of neighbors helping neighbors as we worked alongside agencies from Odessa, Wellington, Higginsville and Sni-Valley.

At 3:43pm today, the MFPD responded to a basement fire on Heth Mound Road in rural Mayview. No injuries, but unfortunately the family did lose one pet. The mutual aid assistance from Higginsville FPD, Wellington-Napoleon FPD, Lexington Fire and Odessa FRPD is greatly appreciated. Rural fires like this show just how important it is to work together with surrounding agencies to provide the best for the people we serve. #neighborshelpingneighbors

This evening, Mr. Dennis Knipmeyer, from the West Central Electric Round-Up Foundation presented a check for $9,975.00 to MFPD's Board Members and Volunteer Firefighters. As a result of the Round-Up Foundation's community grant program, this money will fully fund the purchase of a washer/extractor and dryer system for Mayview Fire. This specialized system will help to limit our volunteer firefighters' prolonged exposure to harmful carcinogens and chemicals that can build up on unwashed turnout gear. Thank you to West Central Electric and all of their customers who contribute to the Round-Up Foundation by rounding their bill up each month. This program is really making a difference in your service area and beyond!

I am not saying you all don't a great job! What i am question is if not a tax raise < why did it say to discuss a proposed rate? I know that some one in this town with a big heart ,one who loves this town ,bought new trucks and etc , for the fire department . Yes I know it is a volunteer thing, my brother in law did it for years! One makes a statement in this town an all one get is answers like the are on trial! My husband is the one who said years ago to put it on the water bill, so everyone at that time had coverage! 😊😊
Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters to the north in Clinton, IA. The Clinton, IA fire family lost one firefighter during a grain bin explosion. A second injured firefighter is still fighting for his life and needs our prayers.
