Chaneyville VFD: Hard Work Pays Off

By  | 

    The Board of Commissioners and the Fire Chief of Chaneyville Fire District #7 are proud to announce that starting September 5, 2011, the Public Protection Classification for Chaneyville Fire District #7 will be changed from Class 7 to Class 5.  All properties located inside the boundaries of this area and within the required distance from a recognized fire station will receive Class 5 rating.

    CVFD has worked diligently for the past 3 years to bring our fire rating down so the citizens can pay less on their homeowners insurance every year.  We asked our citizens to support their fire department and they were there for us.  We could not be more proud of this accomplishment.

    We would like to thank Mayor Melvin "Kip" Holden, our Councilman Trae Welch, State Senator Rob Marioneaux, State Representative Mack "Bodi" White, Mayor Mac Watts. and the City of Central.  We would also like to thank the Fire Departments who assisted anytime there was a need.  These Fire Departments include, but are not limited to, Baton Rouge, Central, Zachary, Pride, Bluff Creek, Olive Branch, Slaughter, St. George and Baker.  Any department that we asked for help always responded.

    The biggest thanks goes to every volunteer who gave their own time, day or night, to do whatever it took to help someone in need.  We will continue to strive to be even better in the future.

Thank you,
Mark Strickland, Fire Chief

    CVFD District follows Little Sandy Creek from the Parish line south to Peairs Rd., north to North Joor Rd., then south along N. Joor, crossing 64, following Joor Road to Solitude Lane, west to and including Littlefield, then south almost to McCullough Rd. over to the Comite River, then North along the Comite to where it branches with Redwood Creek, then along Redwood Creek back to the Parish line.  EDITORS NOTE:  It was members of the CVFD #7 who worked to get fire hydrants placed along Blackwater Rd. in the past 3 years.  Many thanks for your diligence and care and CONGRATULATIONS!
