Established in 1974
The Little Dixie Fire Protection District was formed in 1974 by a vote of the taxpayers. Fire protection was previously provided by what was called Mexico Rural Fire Association since 1945. Concerned citizens of Audrain County felt better fire protection was needed and spearheaded the campaign to form a Fire Protection District under the RSMo's of Missouri.
At its inception, Little Dixie Fire Protection District had eight volunteer firefighters, a 1962 International Pumper, Conservation Department Jeep. Soon homemade 1000 gallon tanker truck was put into service. This equipment was housed in a rental building at the end of North Jefferson street in Mexico, Missouri. Read More
