Fire Departments undergo foreground operations training

An LSU Fire and Emergency Training Academy (FETA) training session was held on Aug. 25 for districts throughout the Parish. Fireground operations were the topic with special emphasis on hose handling and pump operations.

Natchitoches Fire District along with Natchitoches Parish Fire Districts 1, 4, 5, and 6 joined together to refresh skills and test out new technology to measure water flow and pressure. Cooperation and hands-on opportunities with equipment help make departments as efficient as possible during emergency incidents.
