It's heating up outside as we approach the summer and I can't help but think about the wonderful opportunities for friends and families to come together and enjoy all that our area has to offer. Certainly our children are enjoying themselves now that they are out of school. While we enjoy all that summer brings, rest assured that the men and women of St. Tammany Fire Protection District No.1 remain vigilant, ready to respond to the call for service.
It goes without saying but summertime brings an increase in travel and more vehicle crashes, heat related illness and injury, natural and man made disasters including severe weather related events. We know that this year is projected to be an active Hurricane season. It only takes one! Recent weather events including severe storms, heavy rain, flash and river flooding have affected many within our local community, parish and state. St. Tammany Fire Protection District No.1 is poised to respond to all hazardous events including weather related emergencies. We have participated in many planning, training and informational meetings and continue to work with other agencies to ensure that our fire department is fully prepared to respond to these and all emergencies.
Enjoy your summer, stay safe, remain vigilant and remember you can count on your fire department...
St. Tammany Fire Protection District No.1 is here for you!
