Boone County Fire Protection District: A Helping Hand.

IMG_6083_cropped

In the early 60’s, just west of Columbia, there was a fire that claimed the house and life of an old woman. At the time, there was no official fire protection outside the city of Columbia, People were taking notice, and people wanted to help.

The Start of It All

It was a group of CB radio enthusiasts who endured the agony of the situation, unable to provide qualified help, and became determined to offer fire and rescue protection to the citizens outside the city limits. Pat Barnes, one of the founders of the Boone County Fire Protection District, was one of these CB enthusiasts. He gathered others and together they formed the Central Missouri Radio Squad, which later became the Boone County Volunteer Fire Department. In 1970, by a citizens’ vote, the Boone County Fire Protection District was officially formed.
