Change your clocks forward Sunday March 12

Replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and test them



Remember to change the batteries in all your smoke detectors when changing your clocks for daylight savings time. This insures that the batteries are always good and take this opportunity to test the smoke detectors to be sure they work. It is recommended that you replace a smoke detector when it reaches ten years in service.                                             

Smoke Detectors save lives but only if they work.




Wildland Fire Safety and Open Burning

Before doing any open burning remember to check this web site for Fire Danger Information and call the fire in before you light it.

Click the safety information tab for local and state open burning regulations and the number to call before burning.

BURN NOTICE - LOW wildland fire danger

The small amount of precipitation received will give a short reprieve from the high fire danger. The danger will increase as temperatures rises and humidity drops.

The Gravois Fire Protection District has placed the wildland fire danger at LOW. All persons should remain vigilant if doing any open burning, including burn barrels and recreational fires. Any dry fuel can ignite from another fire or heat source and and may experience slow to moderate spread, if allowed to come in contact with dry or dead fuel can react unpredictably. Any property in the path of a fire is at risk. Wildland fire condition will rapidly worsen as temperature and winds dry out ground fuel. All persons should refrain from any open burning, regardless of published wildland fire danger any time humidity drops below 40% or wind speeds exceed 10 mph.

Dock Inspections

The Gravois Fire Protection District does not currently conduct permit inspections for Dock Electrical.

We will respond to a report of electricity in the water or a swimmer being shocked, call 911 immediately and an emergency response will be initiated.

Permit application and regulations required by Ameren, Missouri are available on their web site:

For safety inspections: contact an electrician and have them conduct an inspection based on the regulations from Ameren.
