Augusta, the heart of Wine Country, is located about 45 miles west of St. Louis in the rolling hills on State Highway 94, just north of the Missouri River. In 1905 the Volunteer Fire Company of Augusta Missouri was formed to provide fire protection to the town of Augusta. It was reorganized in 1928 as the Augusta Volunteer Fire Company. Since 1953 we have used the name Augusta Community Volunteer Fire Department and have provided emergency services to the town of Augusta as well as the unincorporated areas in southwest St. Charles County. In 1971 an election was held to form a tax supported district. The Augusta Fire Protection District is protected, under contract, by the Augusta Community Volunteer Fire Department. We run an average of 99 calls per year over the last 15 years. However, in the last 6 years, we have been over 100 and seem to have more each year. Training is held on the first Tuesday of every month. We have a work night for cleaning & maintaining the apparatus and stations on the second Tuesday of the month. Our monthly business meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at station 1.
