Our Mission

It is the mission of the Ste Genevieve Fire Department to preserve life and property, promote public safety and fire prevention through leadership, management and actions, as an all risk life safety response provider. It is the department’s endeavor to deliver the highest level of service to our residents with the utmost professionalism.

Our Team


We have about 30 active members who respond from home, work, or wherever they may be. Each of our members is at a minimum required to attend monthly department training’s and meet a department standard of training.



Ste Gen FD is looking for people who are interested in becoming volunteer members. For a member’s time and commitment we provide equipment and training in a motivating real world environment in order for you to gain an understanding, competence and receive certifications in firefighting. We accept applications throughout the year and bring new members at various times.

Here is a great pic of one of our firefighters learning how to drive our fire trucks this week!

During these times we face together, please know that SGFD remains ready to respond and help our community.

Stay informed and stay safe out there!

Please remember to support local businesses during these trying times. You can also still order take out from most of our restaurants and order online from some of our smaller shops in town that are closed.

Show your support so that they can stay in business and continue to be an integral part of our communities once this is all over.

Stay safe.

Sunday was a busy day for all county fire departments. There were 2 large brush fires and a commercial fire all going on at 1 time. The Ste. Genevieve FD was placed on standby for 1 brush fire and before we got dispatched to this we were sent to handle the commercial fire in Ozora. Great job by the Ozora, St Mary, Zell and Ste Genevieve FDs brought the fire under control quickly. This pic shows 2 of our new guys on a hose.

It may be nice outside but please don’t burn on dry and windy days.
