Our department consists of 35 highly trained and dedicated paid-on-call volunteers and two full-time chief officers. All members are fully certified as both firefighters and emergency medical technicians by the time they complete their probationary period. Our members come from all over the Kansas City area, and sometimes even farther! Many of our members are full-time firefighters for other departments in the Kansas City metro area who choose to continue volunteering with us.
Chief Mindy Andrasevits was hired as the Fire Chief in November of 2021. Prior to serving as our chief, she was a fire inspector and investigator for St. Joseph, MO fire department and a firefighter for North Kansas City, MO fire department.
