Fire Service Information
Missouri Fire Recognition Platform

Did you Know, in 2020 over 4,000 years of service to Missouri fire agencies were lost due to deaths and retirements? In 2021, that number was over 5,000 years! These numbers represent only a fraction of the service years lost annually. The Missouri Division of Fire Safety needs your help to recognize these men and women for their years of dedicated service as Neighbors Helping Neighbors. 

We have implemented a program designed to recognize members of the Missouri fire service in the following categories:

  • Senior fire officers and other members hired/promoted to the rank of Fire Chief in the Missouri fire service
  • The family of any current member or retiree death, regardless of rank
  • Members retiring from the Missouri fire service regardless of rank (as determined by individual agency retirement guidelines) 

The State Fire Marshal will issue a Salute to Service certificate for presentation to the member or member's family, as appropriate. For a deceased member or retiree, the death does not need to be line of duty to receive a certificate. 

If you have anyone in your organization who meets the above criteria, please use the link below and submit the information to our office so that a recognition certificate may be issued. There is NO COST for this recognition.
