About the Fire District Board of Directors

Fire districts operate under the oversight of an elected Board of Directors. The Board is made up of District residents. Board members are elected by residents within the District, and each Board member serves a six-year term.


The Board oversees the financial aspects of the District. Any new expenditures for the District must receive approval from the Board. Members also handle the appointment of Fire Chiefs and other leadership positions within the District. 


Board of Director meetings are held each week (on Tuesday). Minutes from the meeting are available to the public to ensure full transparency in accordance with Missouri’s Sunshine Law. In addition, all District expenditures approved by the Board are public records.

About the Board of Directors Members

The BJFPD Board is comprised of three board members who meet every Tuesday. David Calhoun serves as the president of the Black Jack Fire Protection District Board of Directors, Orlanda Smith is the secretary for the Board, and Kenneth Givens is the treasurer. Meet the members of the District’s Board, and access meeting minutes and yearly fiscal reports.
