Mission“The mission of the Halltown Fire Protection District is to protect the quality of life and the property of those who live, work, invest, visit or travel through our community. “

 Goal“Provide adequate emergency preparedness to handle a variety of property and life emergency situations using the best equipment, volunteer firefighters and training we can provide. We will maintain and support strong mutual aid agreements to support our mission.”

Vision“We will continue the heritage of our previous Association and improve in providing emergency services to our community.”


We cover 105 square miles of territory in the NW quarter of Lawrence County Missouri. We are mostly residential and farm community, with a few businesses and very few medium or large businesses. We do serve a very busy stretch of Interstate I44, highways 174 and 96. 2021 is a milestone of 55 years of continuous service to our members and travelers. In 2021 we switched from the 55 year old Halltown Volunteer Fire Department membership association to a tax based Halltown Fire Protection District. We will continue to embrace the legacy of service to our community. 

With the caring hearts of our community, companies and organizations, volunteer support will be the key to our success to make it possible for the HFPD to continue assisting the local areas and many travelers both personal and commercial. Halltown Fire Protection District relies tax levy and grants to support the day to day operations of responding to emergency situations.
