A big pat on the back for the Shreveport Fire Department.

State Fire Marshal Butch Browning will recognize the Shreveport Fire Department as the winner of the 2016 Louisiana Fire Department of the Year.

This award is given to departments that show dedication and committee to the towns and cities they serve. One of the keys to the win is the effort to promote fire prevention. The Fire Marshall also looks at EMS response and training.

The local fire department will get the honor during the Shreveport City Council meeting Tuesday afternoon.

Browning issued this statement:

Over 150 years ago the citizens of Shreveport laid a strong foundation upon which to build a community where the safety of their people was the guiding principle. This award acknowledges the sacrifices made in the furtherance of making Shreveport Fire Department a top-tier department in the state.

Browning also praised the city for its Class 1 rating which he says “signifies that the Shreveport Fire Department offers superior property fire protection capabilities, which lowers fire insurance costs for businesses and homes alike.”
