Wood Heights, Mo. 64024
Wood Heights Fire Protection District is located in Ray County Missouri just East of Excelsior Springs, Mo. We are a 100% volunteer dept covering 51 square miles of response area. We provide full fire suppression services, first responder services, and rescue services to approx 5500 residents. We provide both city coverage as well as rural coverage. Our department was founded in 1972 and started as an association initially. The department changed to a fire district in 1992 which is supported by county tax basis.
Centrally located in our district is the fire station. Almost of the district is within 5 miles of this location allowing most district citizens to reduce homeowners insurance costs. Residents outside of the 5 mile radius have a higher ISO classification but we are working to decrease that rating and provide the best coverage we can.
