Any resolution after this period will take a two-thirds vote on the convention floor to be considered. Deadline for submission of resolutions to this office is Friday, May 31, 2019.

      Also, in accordance with our Constitution and By-laws, Article IV – Section 2: Representation of Member Locals states that, “Local unions with a membership of 100 or less shall be entitled to two delegates. Locals with membership exceeding 100 shall be entitled to delegates as follows:

      Number of Members Number of Delegates
      101-250 3

      To be entitled to delegate representation at the convention, “a local must not be delinquent in per capita tax. Furthermore, the local must have been a member in good standing in the organization at least twelve (12) months prior to the convention.”

      Additional information will be made available soon as more specific details are finalized. We look forward to celebrating our 50th convention with you this summer.

      Fraternally,

      Norman Baker
      Secretary-Treasurer

      The Lake Ozark Fire Protection District is seeking Firefighter/Paramedic candidates to take part in our employment testing process on 03/23/19 in Camdenton, Missouri.  This process will create an eligibility list for 1 year.  We currently have 3- Firefighter/Paramedic openings initially to be filled from this process.  Complete employment details are here in the attached documentation. Please feel free to contact the District offices if you have any questions at 573.365.3380.

      The Lake Ozark Fire Protection District is located in central Missouri. The district is comprised of suburban/rural area and has a resident full-time population around 7,000 residents. During the summer months in season, the population of the district can swell to over 60,000 people with the influx of tourists.

      The Fire District is a full-service Advanced Life Support Fire/Rescue agency operating out of 3 stations and a training center.   The District maintains a fleet of apparatus that includes ambulances, engines, ladders, tankers, heavy rescue, brush trucks, fire/rescue boats, and support vehicles. Our firefighters are represented by the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 3987.

      The district’s primary response area is 42 square miles with 17 miles of lakefront waterway and 5 miles of the Osage river.   In 2018, the fire district responded to over 1300 calls for service. Our incident responses include EMS, Fires, Auto Accidents, Boating Accidents, Technical Rescue and Haz Mat incidents.   We face numerous response challenges that are unique to our jurisdiction. Our waterfront properties are well developed with many structures, both residential and commercial. Many of our hotels and resorts present unique response challenges.

      We have automatic and mutual aid agreements with twelve (12) neighboring fire districts and four (4) EMS services. This increases our mutual aid response area to 1,247 miles and a population of 80,000. Like our district, the surrounding districts total population can grow from 80,000 to over 200,000 in the summer.
