Louisiana Neighborhood Residents Want to Change Fire Districts

August 23, 2013

The St. Landry Parish Council has agreed to delay action on a request from residents in a rural subdivision near Sunset to change their fire protection district to obtain better service and lower home insurance rates.

Before voting on the motion Wednesday, The Advocate reports the council said it wants to find out the feasibility of having Fire District 4 obtain an extra water tank truck to help the Camelot Heights subdivision in case of fire.

Carol Fontenot, one of the residents who spoke at the meeting, said residents in Camelot Heights would prefer to be in Fire District 3, which has a substation in nearby Shuteston, allowing it to provide a better response time.
