Over the years the fire district has seen enormous changes from its original inception. Formed in April 1949, the Robertson Fire District began as an all volunteer department paid for by community members. The District's first firetruck was a gift from the City of Kinloch, Land for the original firehouse was purchased through the sale of fire tags and built by community residents providing free labor.  It served as a community center for residents, playing movies for children on weekends and hosting evening functions for adults. As the area around the old town of Robertson grew, the District's boundaries expanded to provide fire protection services for new residents. 

The fire district was named after the original town that it protected, the town of Robertson. The town derived its name from Robertson Airfield, which was later re -named Lambert International airport. Due to airport expansion over the years, the old town of Robertson, as people knew it ,vanished. One of the only remaining buildings in Robertson is the first Baptist church. Originally surround by residential homes, it is now shadowed by commercial warehouse buildings.

 

In the late 1960's, as tax revenues grew, the Robertson Fire Protection Districts began to become a paid fire district. Currently covering parts of the city of Bridgeton, the city of Hazelwood, and unincorporated St. Louis County, the fire district covers approximately 16.5 square miles and has 40 paid employees.
