Northern Wright County VFD on dues, burn policy


The Northern Wright County Volunteer Fire Department (Manes area) membership fees are due December 31 for 2021.

NWCVFD covers most of the area north of Highway 38 to partial east sides of Highways Z and E. Call 417-531-5729 for a membership form.

NWCVFD’s “burn policy” began last year.

You are requested to call 417-547-7182 at the 911 office before you burn on your property.

If the NWCVFD is called to your property more than one time for an unreported controlled-burn, there will be a charge even if you are a member.

This procedure will help the 911 call center identify controlled-burn addresses and not send fire departments if a passerby calls with that location at that time.

Most volunteer fire departments in this area follow this procedure.
