WALKER – Impressive improvements are happening at a fire station in Livingston Parish. Livingston Parish Fire Protection District 4 in Walker now has more full-time staff, equipment, and work space.
This is a change for the station that was dependent on it’s unpaid firefighters.
“We’re the largest volunteer fire department, area-wise, in the state,” said District 4 board chairman Robert Dugas. “But with the population growth that we’ve had, we’ve had less volunteers so we’ve had to go to more career-based firefighters within the district.”
