Parish to build fire station extensions in Lobdell, Addis

Written by Emily Bell on . Posted in Local

About one month into its first full-year operating budget, the parish fire district has plans for two fire stations.

The Lobdell fire station has five fire trucks but only three bays, Parish Fire Chief Kenny Hunts said, so two fire trucks are always parked outside. The improvement to that fire station would be a three-bay extension, he said, and is considered an “emergency funding” project.

Charles Stephens, West Baton Rouge Parish’s Fire Chief, resigned from his position last Thursday, January 8.

Stephens was appointed the first fire chief of the parish-wide fire department in July 2014 after the parish began their consolidation of their six sub-districts.

Stephens, who has more than 20 years of experience as a firefighter, submitted his letter of resignation to Parish President Riley “Pee Wee” Berthelot before the fire district’s Board of Commissioner’s meeting Thursday night.
