Protection, Section 320.302 (August 28, 2011).

"In responding to emergencies of nonmembers, the volunteer fire protection association may charge up
to $100 for responding, $500 for each additional hour that CBFA volunteers are on their property
responding to a fire or medical emergency, plus one year's membership dues.   

IF you don't want to be billed you must file a 'DO NOT RESPOND' letter with CBFA prior to your
emergency.

Property owners include those with vacant lots.  Three of our most recent fires responded to by our
Firefighters have been on vacant lots.

10% of CBFA property owners have NOT paid their 2018-2019 dues.  
Remind your CBFA neighbors and friends to pay their dues.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR FIRE.  Burning anything other than leaves, brush, tree limbs or household
trash is ILLEGAL without a permit from the MO Dept. of Natural Resources and the fines can be large..  DO NOT
burn in the wind; wear protective clothing; and have a hose handy.  DO NOT LEAVE YOUR FIRE UNATTENDED.
