Natchitoches Parish Fire District 7 is getting 5 New Fire Hydrants installed on Hwy. 485. This area has never had any fire hydrants. Units in the area would have to go to Robeline or Ajax area to fill up.

This will be a great help in case water is needed to fill up the fire units in case of an emergency. Also this will help with insurance ratings. FD 7 currently has a Class 6 Fire Rating.

The hydrants will be installed on the Powhatan Water System. Should have all 5 installed by July 6.
