Chief Ken Himel
Welcome to the Chief's Corner!
I hope all of you are well. As you are well aware, we are in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please know that we are doing everything we can to keep all of our employees, as well as the public we interact with, safe. We are following all of the CDC guidelines and the directions of our medical director when respond to emergency calls. We have participated in three mask give-a-ways and are ready to assist the parish should we be called to do so again. With a little patience and perseverance, we can all get through these unprecedented times.
Our Fire Prevention Bureau is available to assist businesses in our district with any life safety issues that may come up. I highly recommend, if you have not already done so, to register with www.opensafely.org. If you have questions regarding the information that pertains to your specific business occupancy, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Lastly, it is our hope that you all find our new website helpful. It is my intent to communicate with you through this blog as well as our other social media site. This is your fire department! It is our goal to give you a department that you can be proud to call your own. It is an honor and a privilege to serve the residents, business owners, and visitors of our district with Bravery, Compassion, Faithfulness, and Dedication. Until next time, Stay Safe!
