New engines at Fire Department show support for NSU

The Natchitoches Fire Department is happy to announce the arrival of two new engines to replace its aging fleet. Engine 1 will replace the existing Engine 1 located at the Central Fire Station. Engine 2 will be located at Station 2 on East Fifth Street.

According to Fire Chief John Wynn, plans are in the works to replace Engine 3, located at Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, in the near future.

“We have placed a flaming ’N’ on the new engines to signify our continued support of Northwestern State University,” he said. “We would like to thank the City of Natchitoches and its citizens for the continued support of our Fire Department.” 

Chief Wynn encourages residents to stop by and visit their local station and get to know the First Responders that serve the area.

“We appreciate our first responders,” said NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio. “Our logo on the trucks shows collaboration and closeness and makes us feel like we’re part of the community.”
