Pointe Coupee Fire District 4 has applied for and received a $63,100 FEMA Fire Prevention Grant to put a smoke detector in every home, mobile home and apartment in our fire district. The district covers approximately 300 square miles with an estimated 2500 structures which will qualify for this program. The smoke detectors which have been ordered has a 10 year battery, which will eliminate having to change the battery every 6 months. Our Goal is to begin installing the new detectors within the next 30 days and continue the process until the entire district is completed. We have a list of all the residential address in our district and will be coming by each home to install them for the home owner at no charge. This is a lifesaving initiative for the residents of Fire District # 4. If you live in our response area and have not seen a fire fighter in the area installing them by January, please contact us at 225-637-3834 to see when we will be in your area. If we come by and you are not at home we will leave an information card telling you we were in your area and missed you. We will be coming back to your home again and you will receive a free smoke detector. We will have to document the installation of the detector and will be asking you to sign a very simple form and answer a couple of questions about how many people live in the residence and their ages. This data will be placed in our computer data base for preplanning each residence for use in case of a fire at your address.
Pointe Coupee Fire District # 4 will be hosting a tactical combat casualty class on June 14th from 7 to 3 pm at the Livonia Community Center. The training is aimed at performing life saving techniques in combat situations. The department is funding the tuition for our members. This is a great class and will provide you with a nationally recognized certification. Please email me if you want to attend.
