Hello and welcome to the official website of the Wright City Fire Protection District. 


Our intent with this website and our many other social media platforms is to provide a window into our programs and services.  We invite you to look through this site and get to know what makes the Wright City Fire Protection District so special.  We strive to provide the information you seek, and we hope you find this website a useful tool to meet your needs.


The purpose of our existence can be found in our Mission Statement to “Serve, Educate, and Protect Our Community.”  This mission will be achieved by career and volunteer professionals committed to excellence and dedicated to service in all categories of emergency response.


Originally established in the 1800’s, the Wright City Fire Department was founded with the community-spirited concept of neighbors helping neighbors.  Over the years, that spirit has become woven into the fabric of the community and remains the very backbone of our organization.


Today the Fire District operates as a combination agency, which means its membership is comprised of both volunteer and career personnel.  These dedicated professionals work side by side providing a wide variety of services to the community.


On behalf of the professional men and women who serve here at Wright City Fire Protection District, let me assure you that our community spirit is alive and well in our demonstrated service to you.  As we are dedicated, so too is our pride in our commitment.


With this stated, let me be clear that it is in our partnership with the community that we place our heartfelt pride and plan to further this long-term relationship both as a community member and participant alongside the people we serve. 


During the recent past, we have, with the support of our Board of Directors and community, positioned the District to continue moving forward into the future.  We have improved our ISO rating, continued to improve our training and education, and provided state of the art equipment to ensure our well-trained and efficient members can continue to deliver high quality services to our citizens in a fiscally responsible manner.


As we continue our move forward, we will embrace new and challenging goals for the District and use our adopted Vision Statement as our road map for success in the future.  Our Vision Statement: “We are recognized within the community for setting the standards in public safety and education through responsive leadership dedicated to professional conduct and ethics.”


“Proud to Prepare, Prevent, and Protect” is our motto, and we are pleased to do whatever it takes to meet your expectations.  Please feel free to contact me or any of our personnel with any of your questions, suggestions or recommendations regarding Wright City Fire Protection District.  After all, we work for you.


Yours truly,

Ron MacKnight

Chief of Wright City Fire Protection District
